Training Band 

The Training Band was formed / reinstated in 2016 and consists of players aged from 5 to 50. 


Research has established that learning music facilitates learning other subjects, including language development, math and spatial skills. Put another way, music helps connect the pathways between left and right hemisphere processing, that is transferable to all areas of learning. 


Music education includes being disciplined, learning a skill, being part of the music world, managing performance, and being part of something you can be proud of.


The Training Band provides for individual and group tuition, which is ably supported by members of the main Band.


The Training Band performs a fun and challenging repertoire and regularly joins with the main Band for performances, the last of which was the 2017 Christmas concert.


The Training Band rehearses in the bandrooms every Wednesday evening 6:15pm - 7:00pm, individual and group tuition occurs by arrangement prior to the band rehearsal on a Wednesday evening.
