LEARNERS CLASSES

Currently on hold due to Covid restrictions, we normally hold classes for beginners and intermediate players every Thursday before our main practice. Players of all ages are taught the basics of playing a brass instrument (instrument provided). Eventually the aim is that players get to a standard where they are invited to attend the main band practice as well, to further help their musical development.

The class is ably supported by some of our senior players who are there to work closely with the developing players, and offer tuition and encouragement.

Lots of our learners go on to achieve great things in brass banding, including our current MD, Nathan Waterman, who himself rose through the ranks here at Thrapston, eventually playing for many years as Solo Horn for a Championship section band.
