The band is always looking to recruit more members - we could always do with more cornets, tenor horns and trombones and, in fact, will welcome anyone on any brass band instrument!
If you’re not sure which large metal object would suit you, have a look at the instrument page, which gives a quick overview of the make-up of a brass band.
If you’re still not sure, get in touch and then come along and try a few of them to see which feels most comfortable. Horns come in all shapes and sizes - there’s one in there to fit everyone somewhere, and we’ve got a few in the cupboard waiting for someone to come along and try them out.
And it doesn’t matter if you’ve never played anything before - we’ll show you how to read music (it’s not that hard, honestly…), which of the odd buttons you need to push to get which noise out of it - and in most cases we can lend you an instrument to practice on until you feel confident enough to go and buy your own.
We rehearse on Wednesday evenings, 7.30pm - 9pm at Ash Grove Academy, Belgrave Rd, Macclesfield, so, if you’re interested, come along (maybe a little early) and have a chat.
