Rehearsals take place on Tuesday evenings starting at 19:30 until 21:30 with at short break at 20:30 at Saltwood Primary School, Grange Road, Saltwood, CT21 4QS
The band is always ready to welcome new players. Anyone who plays a concert band instrument (wind, brass or percussion) and wishes to join must be at least grade 5 ability although he or she doesn’t necessarily have to have taken the exam. If you are not quite sure how you would fare why not come along and find out by sitting in at a rehearsal. You won’t know unless you try.
Alternatively, if you are below grade 5 standard you don’t need to miss out. Why not join our training band rehearsals of which are also held on Tuesdays at the same venue from 18:15 until 19:15. It is open to players of any age, young and not so young who are at least grade 1 standard.
Joining the training band will not only provide you with the opportunity to enjoy the experience of ensemble playing with others of a similar standard to yourself but it is a terrific way to improve your playing. Of course, as an added incentive once you have improved to the required standard you will be encouraged and invited to graduate into the Concert Band.
So, what are you waiting for? Contact us or just come along to a rehearsal. You will be very welcome.
