Our Training Band is the ideal environment for anyone picking up a brass instrument for the first time. We have players who are still in Primary School playing alongside the young at heart who have decided to take up a new hobby in their retirement. Training Band is also a perfect step back in to music for those who have not played in a while and are looking for a pressure free path back in to banding.
Musical Director, Colin Forster, is supported by various players who give encouragement to all players.
In addition to the Friday night rehearsal (6.30pm in Charlton Kings) Roger runs a learner group on a Monday night for the more novice players.
Training Band was originally created to promote the love of brass playing, and to get players to a level where they could reasonably join the Main Band. At that time, Training Band had very few members. We are delighted to say that whilst the more novice of our Band members are found in this section of the band, Training Band now performs in its own right at many local events such as school fayres, and community days.
