The Lydney Training Band was launched in 2005 to teach adults and children how to play brass and percussion. It has over 30 junior members and performs at fundraising, charity and local events all through the year. The Band plays a wide range of music, such as traditional brass, jazz, pop, film music and our own arrangements to suit all tastes. The high standard of the training band enables it to play more challenging music as well as simpler music for the newer members.
Due to the success of membership a Starter Band was formed. They do a number of local jobs throughout the year.
We have a structured approach to tuition and music grades are taught by a qualified music teacher. The conductor, Kevin Ford, has over 45 years experience in top banding. It is a recipe for success. The organisation charge £1 a week subs for tuition and instrument hire, and rehearse on Mondays, 6.30pm - 7.30pm, Swan Road, Lydney, Glos. GL15 5RU.
