Wind Band

Age 11-19

Fee: £75 per term

Recommended playing level is Grade 5+.

Wind Band is conducted by Stuart Gray and Stephen Boyd, both experienced teachers and performers.  This ensemble will help improve sight reading, intonation, playing as part of a section but above all is fun to be part of.

The wind band meets in the Autumn and Spring terms once a fortnight on Sunday afternoon 3.30 – 5pm.  Each term focuses on new repertoire ending with a concert to showcase the work that has been done that term.

There is no audition to join Wind Band.  We suggest an approximate standard of Grade 4+ and all wind and brass instruments are welcome.  Members often progress to our youth ensembles, Young Sinfonia and Jambone.

We’d love to hear from you if you are interested in joining part of our Young Musicians Programme. You can email [email protected] or call 0191 443 5252.
