The Children’s Band is for children aged 8-14 who play to at least a Grade 5 standard. The band spends a week-long summer residential course studying a wide range of brass band music suitable for our advanced young players. Every year a brand-new piece is written especially for the band. Members receive tuition from the best brass and percussion tutors and perform alongside an exceptional guest soloist at our end of course concert. Whilst not rehearsing, the children are well looked after by a dedicated team of pastoral staff and there are fun and relaxing activities away from rehearsals to help forge new friendships. The fee for the residential course, which includes all tuition, accommodation and food is £485 (bursaries and leadership grants are also available).
