New brass band for Muswell Hill, London N10

Discussion in 'Recruitment Corner' started by North Londoner, Dec 16, 2010.

  1. North London Brass (currently banding in Enfield, Southgate and Edmonton) is planning a new band for Muswell Hill, London N10, to launch in 2011, to be known as 'NLB Muswell Hill'.

    We've got a nucleus of players to get it off the ground, but would welcome expressions of interest from other players, any standard or experience, who would be interested in joining with us in this exciting new venture.

    The band will be rehearsing in the town centre on Tuesday and/or Wednesday evenings each week. We'll be studying traditional material, marches and classics to get us off the starting blocks, but in time the band will develop its own character and specialism, we're sure.

    The advantage of joining a North London Brass network band is that we have the strength in depth of sister bands across North London, studying a similar core repertoire, so that concert and rehearsal deps, when needed, are no problem. We have an extensive central library for our bands to use, several talented conductors and a team of professional instrumental specialists to provide coaching and mentoring where required.

    North London Brass also runs a full training band (NLB Academy) programme in each of its locations so that younger learners and mature beginners can study and perform at a level that suits them before promotion to the full bands. As we're running several bands in the region, players with aspirations to move up to principal desks have potentially more opportunity to do so.

    Above all, North London Brass is about getting more people of all ages back into and starting up brass playing. We're focused on revitalising brass playing in North London and to encouraging a revival of banding in our corner of the world.

    Our team also work with The Boys' Brigade in London to coach brass playing and provide banding opportunities for young people. We also run a learners' symphony orchestra and a swing big band in Enfield, which similarly provide brass playing opportunities for people of all ages and experience.

    Please contact us if you're local to any of our bands and can think of any ways to support us in our mission or, indeed, if you would like to come and play with us either as a welcome visitor or on a more regular basis. Thanks.
