Downton Band

Music for All

Do you want to learn a musical instrument? Do your children want to learn a musical instrument?

Downton Training Band and Beginners Brass offer everyone a chance to learn brass and drums with expert tuition and lots of fun along the way. Our Beginners Brass group meets every Monday during term time from 6pm whilst our Training Band meets every Wednesday during term time at 6.00pm for an hour and everyone is welcome. We will provide the tuition, music andexpertise plus we’ll even lend you an instrument!

Beginners Brass is designed for people who wish to start playing – we can teach you from scratch. And then when you progress a bit and can play a few notes and read weencourage you to join our Training Band.

And once you feel confident you can also come along and join our "just for fun" Downton Jubilee Brass or the Downton Senior Band.

All youneed to bring is yourself and your enthusiasm! We welcome people of any age and we particularly encourage families to come along and learn together – parents - you all get so much more out of it if you learn an instrument at the same timeas your children!

For 2017/18 our first rehearsals back after the summer are: Training Band 6th September – Beginners Brass 11th September.
