WE HAVE VACANCIES — see below
LATEST NEWS — EASINGWOLD BRASS BEGINNERS’ CLUB (EBBC)
We started in January 2015 with a dozen participants, half-and-half youngsters and adults. Group tuition is by brass specialists, and the cost is £5 per (school) term. Instruments are available on loan at no cost. The minimum age is 8, with no upper limit. Rehearsals take place on Fridays at our bandroom in Croft Close, Easingwold (postcode YO61 3BD), from 6.30 to 8 p.m.
Would you like to learn to play a brass instrument? Or perhaps you wish you had? Or maybe you’d like to build on what you’re learning at school? Here’s your chance — and you don’t necessarily have to be young. Can’t read music? Don’t worry, some members of our Beginners’ Club are also starting from scratch. As long as you can find the time to do some practice at home — as little as ten minutes every day — you’re likely to surprise yourself with your progress. And the more you progress, the more fun it gets.
If you’re interested, let us have your contact details — email address, mobile phone or landline number. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone/text 07717 944900 Bill Cleghorn at the Town Band.
NEWS of VACANCIES in EASINGWOLD TOWN BAND
We have vacancies for solo cornet, back-row cornet, 2nd tenor horn and principal E-flat bass. If you’ve recently moved into the area, or you’d like to get back into brass banding after a break, or maybe you’re a student at one of York’s universities or colleges; or even if you just feel ready for a change — come along for a blow!
We play at local events throughout the year — fêtes and garden parties, parades, village fairs, charity events, Christmas carol services, official occasions — with summer performances on the Bandstand in the Town’s Memorial Park.
