NOT PLAYED FOR A FEW YEARS!
Don't worry, we can offer you specialised help. Several of our leading players have returned to playing after a lengthy gap and so are proof that it can be done! READ MORE about RETURNERS
We could use your experience! Why not give us a try? "Civvy" bands are a lot more fun - and there's no marching!
THINKING OF CHANGING STYLES?
If you are in an orchestra, a brass band or a swing/pop band etc. you might just find a wind band interesting and fun. Read our VACANCIES page for details.
