When your child’s teacher believes that your child has made sufficient progress all musicians will be invited and encouraged to play in one or more of our bands at no extra cost. Playing together is an important aspect of music, pupils’ progress quicker, make new friends and most importantly find learning fun.
We regularly hold concerts at local venues to give children the opportunity to perform on a regular basis.
