Band is always on including holidays.

Approx times. As usual I will adjust as needed.

500-550 Beginners -level .5-1.5 band music. Good for proper warm up and review of basics. Standard of Excellence Book 1(red) and supplied sheet music. We play at the level of the most novice players so that can change from week to week.

550-640 Intermediate level 2-2.5 band music.

640-730 Advanced.

This years first performances will be fest of the trees(probably late Nov) then an end of term concert in Dec.

This year we will be playing music from our past 5 seasons plus a selection of new pieces which will be a year long project.

Do not be intimidated, band music has parts with different levels of difficulty for most instruments.

Inviting people to check out the band is great but if they are planning to drop in and play let me know in well advance (if they are not going to play off your music) so I can find parts for them and verify that it is a band compatible instrument.

The odds of me being ready with parts for a left handed flugalphone in F# minor are not good.

 

This instructional band meets every Monday from 500-730 pm at the 1st Baptist Church corner of 5th and Gillett.

Our next term runs from Sept 11 to the end of Dec 2017, you may join at any time. Open to all adults regardless of playing experience, beginners welcome.

We have some of the auxiliary instruments (bass clarinet, Eb clarinet) to loan to regular members (not available to drop in players) There is a small monthly charge to cover maintenance starting June 30 2017 as we no longer have a business sponsor covering those costs and funding is highly variable.
