We are sure there are players out there who used to play in bands but left due to a lack of commitment from other players or that dreaded ‘musical’ term politics! We have our Academy brass which is growing numerically and making progress so the base is formed. What we require now are capable players to come back to banding or try it for the first time. We are a group of players whose aim is to enjoy making music and at the highest level, both at concerts and contests. We rehearse twice weekly and we have a busy diary because we like to get out and entertain people and bring the sound of the brass band to as many people as possible. We are an all-inclusive band and our band room is disabled friendly. We are particularly interested in trombone and cornet players but if you play another instrument then you are very welcome too.
If you are interested in playing with us please contact us via this website, or ring 07901647927. Why not come along to a rehearsal have a blow and a chat with us?
We Need You!
Torbay Brass Band is currently going through a rebuilding process. To facilitate this we have started the process at grassroots with our Academy Brass which is growing and making progress BUT it is a work in progress. Ideally, we are seeking brass players who are able to join the main band now and keep this rebuilding process going. We are an all-inclusive band and our band room is disabled friendly. We work hard, and we are a very friendly group who enjoy a good social life. We want to make music and to bring the sound of the brass band to as many people as we can. We have a young enthusiastic conductor who is also committed to this aim.
We are particularly are looking for:
Solo Horn and or a Principal Euphonium, Eb Bass.
If you are interested, then please contact us our contact form here, via our facebook or twitter pages. Alternatively, you can ring the Chairman on 07901 647927 or the Secretary on 07834 915411, in strictest confidence.
Our Brass Academy is open to all young people. Never played a brass instrument but would like to learn? You can play but want to join with other like-minded people of a similar age? We particularly welcome older age group youngsters who can already play to join our ‘band’ of very enthusiastic youngsters which now numbers 20 who are at various stages of their musical development. Some of the current group of learners are already starting to play with Torbay Brass Band, and we hope that others will come through and join them.
We meet in our band room every Friday & Monday night 7.15pm until 8.00pm. Instruments/music are provided free as is the tuition. Tutors are all DBS checked. Tea and coffee for parents and guardians whilst you wait for your child!
