EXPERIENCE STAPE SILVER BAND
Journey Through Music
Anyone is welcome to join the band. If you are already an accomplished player, senior band practices are at our bandroom on Thursday evenings from 7:30pm to 9:30pm.
We currently have vacancies for cornets, trombones, basses and percussion.
If you would like to learn how to play, the training band meets every Tuesday at the bandroom between 6.30 and 7.30. You can join even if you are an absolute beginner. The aim is to provide the experience of playing with others, as a band, with help from members of the Senior Band, so that in due course the players should be able to progress to the main band. Instruments are provided and the group is split up by abilities for part of the hour session. All players have a workbook for their own instrument but as a band arrangement so they can play parts as an ensemble.
The training band take part in several engagement each year at least one with the senior band and at other venues such as Eden Camp and Alba Rose Nursing home.
