Junior Band Question

My 8yr old daughter is a keen cornet player of 12months. She is showing great intertest in the instrument and is progressing well. I was wondering if there are any Brass bands in the Oldham area that have a beginners/junior section that is friendly and helpful to newcomers.

Any comments, suggestions would be helpful

I bet this person's just got about 500 private messages from junior bands!

I wish your youngster all the best in her playing career. Always nice to see new recruits. :)

Sure is. Since I have started to help at junior band teaching the kids you get a great sense of achievement seeing them progress an especially seeing them enjoy themselves and wanting to go home an practice and come back the next week excited to tell you what they have been playing during the week.

erm all depends on how much u want to travel i think, st helens youth has 3 sections of band depending on players standard, theres a beginners band, a training band, and then the youth band. but that is probably abit far to travel (espesh when they practise on saturday mornings starting at 9 30)

errrrr ill end my "advertise my own band" thing now


im sure there will be brass bands in the oldham area with junior bands, and if there arent ill be very surprised
