Join us for three music-making days for children and young people in West Berkshire! A great opportunity for young woodwind, brass and percussion players (beginner to Grade 3 standard) to learn exciting repertoire and learn what it’s like to play in a wind band as well as meeting other young musicians and making new friends.

Each day will have a different theme:

  • Wednesday 31 July - Around the World. Explore music from different countries.
  • Thursday 1 August - Breezin' Down Broadway. Arrangements from musicals and shows.
  • Friday 2 August - Top of the Pops. Lots of different pop and rock songs.

You can enrol onto one, two or three days as suits you.

This is your chance to:

  • Meet like-minded young musicians and make new friends
  • Improve your playing skills and develop your technique
  • Have fun playing together as part of a wind band
  • Learn some well-known pieces and perform for family and friends

Parents/carers will be welcome to come along to a short end of day concert at 2:30pm.
