Beginner and Trainee sections are free in line with our charitable aims of encouraging music in the village. Performance section players £5 per month.

Generally rehearsals are every Monday evening, except Bank and School holidays.

The band rehearses in three sections, Beginners, Trainee, and Performance, with individual players self selecting one of more sections in which to rehearse.

During performances each piece of music will be played by one or more sections, the purpose of which is to either allow each section to demonstrate their abilities, or to allow the whole band to play together.

The band meets up every Monday evening (term time) at the Pill Memorial Club to rehearse. The rehearsal timings are:

Beginners - recent beginners or those less confident.

Trainee - Players who have played for one or more years and who demonstrate improved ability from the Beginners.

Peformance - Adults and talented younger players who can play to level 5 or above, and who enjoy the challenge of regular new pieces of music.

The band owns a selection of instruments which are available for loan to band members. Please ask for availability.
