Training Band

Our Training Band is very successful. The players are coming on really well and enjoy taster sessions with the main band and their own mini concerts for friends and family.

We are continuing to expand our training band activity and we now have two groups running. Excelsior Beginners, led by Andrea Reid, is for players with no prior experience. We aim to make each rehearsal interesting, informative and fun.

Our second group is Excelsior Gold Sparks and this is for players of around grade 1 onwards. Sam Mills chooses some interesting music for this group and we are always open to suggestions of pieces to play from our players.

We meet on a Friday at St John's Church, Churchdown. The Beginners and Gold groups run from 5:45pm to 6:45 pm. All our groups have instruments which are provided on loan by us free of charge and each weekly rehearsal is just £2.50 for the first family member and £1.25 for subsequent family members. Bargain!

In September 2019 we started a new Bronze beginners group and we still have a few spaces for children or adults to join us. Enquiries to Jen Prior on 01242 582329 or contact us via the Contact Us page on this website. We look forward to meeting you!
