Middleton launch new training band

Middleton Band is delighted to announce the expansion of their youth band provision with the launch of their all new training band for beginner brass players.

The launch begins with an open day on 9th September, 11.00am- 12.30pm at our band room at St Stephen’s Church Hall, where prospective new members can come along to meet the team, try out some of our instruments, play with or listen to our established youth band and register for our new training band.

The first rehearsal for the new training band will be on Monday 11th September from 6.30pm – 7.30pm. New members will benefit from our free instrument loan scheme and free tuition from qualified tutors in a fun and safe environment.

We are extremely excited to have secured funding for this project from Tesco bags of Help, Middleton Round Table and other sources to enable us to be able to provide a free, professional service to local young people.

Young people aged 7+ who have recently started brass lessons in school or privately or who wish to begin to learn a brass instrument are all welcome to register for our new training band by emailing our youth band manager Louise: youthband@middletonband.com and/or to pop along to our open day!

We also have vacancies for any established young brass player in our youth band. Vacancies would suit players of approx. grade 1/2 standard or above with opportunities for more advanced players to progress into our senior band.
