The L.G.B. Training Band rehearses every Thursday during term time from 7-7.50pm at the All Saints Centre, Lewes. The group is primarily aimed at young people of up to Grade 5 level, but adults who wish to brush up their skills are also very welcome. You do not need to own your own instrument as we can usually provide one.
The group is led by Christina Kearley, Jane Humberstone and Lizzie Holmes, all experienced local teachers.
The focus of the Training Band is to learn, improve and gain experience. Playing music in a group is fun and rewarding and many of the band members go on to join the main band. To ensure that players can gain the most value from the Training Band, those attending should also be having individual or small-group lessons with a professional teacher.
We welcome new members, so if you would like to come along please get in touch.
