Ever wanted to learn how to play a musical instrument?

Ever wanted to join a brass band?

Wells City Band is very fortunate to have it’s own Training Section. We offer both individual and group tuition from age 8 to 100!

Once the basic few basic notes are learnt we encourage our learners to join in with the Training Section. Here they begin to understand the basic principles of playing as a group, watching a conductor and all essential skills needed for their progression in to the Main Band.

The Training Section has been involved in concerts throughout 2019; at the Christmas concert, the massed bands day at the Wells Bandstand and our summer Training Section showcase ‘chip’ concert.

If you are interested in learning to play a brass instrument in our Training Section or are someone who hasn’t played for a while and wants to get back into it or if you are an experienced player wishing to join our Main Band please contact Jane Hill on 01749  675668 or complete our contact form.
