The Training Band is the ideal environment in which to learn how to play an instrument as part of a brass band. We encourage players of any age or standard including complete beginners. We have a variety of brass instruments available for loan for fully subscribed Training Band members.
The Training Band is staffed by members of the Oxted Band. We have two conductors (Rebekka and Ben), who rotate rehearsals between them, and are supported by other members who sit in at rehearsals and help with playing, reading the music etc.
The main aim of the Training Band is to enable players to develop their skills to a standard to be able to join the Oxted Band. There are a number of members in the Oxted Band who are 'graduates' of the Training Band and many still help with Training Band.
