    North London Brass contests 4th Section as a 'band of bands', with players selected from across our Network. If you don't like contesting, therefore, you can just opt out and nobody minds a jot!

    We are an eclectic mix of players of all ages and experience, many of whom we've taught from scratch as adult learners or encouraged as returning players. All Network players can participate in our Quarterly weekend workshops and our Massed Bands gatherings of up to 100 brass players at the historic Church of St Giles Cripplegate, Barbican, London EC2, under Central Band MD Andy Flaxman (former Principal Trombone, HM Coldstream Guards).

    Network players can also be eligible for selection for our NLB Staff Band, rehearsing as required for our highest-profile gigs, under the direction of John Holland and meeting in the Barbican.

    Further explanation of our original, off the wall approach and range of opportunities, which include big band jazz and orchestral playing, can be found on our website at
