Youth Band

About Us

Middleton youth, training and beginner bands are a community organisation for young people aged 7 upwards from the Middleton and surrounding areas. We offer everything a young person needs to learn to play a brass instrument in a fun and safe environment.
The youth bands have an interesting and varied calendar of events from charity events, summer fairs and formal concerts to competitions and tours further afield – see our calendar.
The youth bands are supported by the ‘senior’ Middleton band who provide tutors and many opportunities for our young musicians to gain experience playing alongside the senior band at a higher level and eventually progress into the senior band full time.

Join our organisation

Beginners Monday 5.15-5.45pm

We welcome complete beginners of any age to come to learn to play with us. We provide tuition and can provide instrument loan too. There are no charges for this service and absolutely no catches.

We are accepting expressions of interest for the next cohort of new beginners to start in September 2019. To register interest, please email our youth band manager Louise who will be delighted to provide further information.

Training Band 5.45-6.45pm

Our highly successful Training band has vacancies for any brass players in the early stages / first few years of learning to play, they may have  begun to play  in school or with private tutors and may be looking for a fun group setting to practice the skills they are learning in their lessons. We can provide instrumental loan and offer all our training band members additional small group tuition from our team of tutors.

Youth & Community band 6.45-7.45pm

Currently, we are recruiting for players of any age who can already play confidently so our vacancies will suit players who have been learning for a couple of years right through to more advanced players.  Our members currently range from  7 to 70+!

Unlike most bands in the area, we offer our time, our staff and our instruments for free. There are no fees and no catches, all we ask is that members look after any instruments we loan out and make a solid commitment to attending rehearsals and concerts regularly.

Get in touch!
