If you are interested in learning to play a wind instrument, the training band will guide you through each note (reading music and fingering) and build up to playing simple tunes with the rest of the band. Examples shown below.
Music for your instrument will be provided each week and include:
a) Beginners lessons in which notes to play are added each week, and basic musical notations such as rhythms, rests, articulations, etc are gradually introduced.
b) simple tunes to learn and play with the rest of the band
