Downshire Youth and Junior Bands have a number of spaces available from September 2019 for aspiring young brass players! We have opportunities in our junior band for young beginner players and in our youth band for players of grade 3 standard and above. There will also be a beginners class starting in late September for those starting out to learn a brass instrument. This will lead directly into the Youth Band.
For any new players, we are holding an open evening on Thursday 26th September at 7pm (Malone Presbyteriasn Church), so please come along with your instrument and meet players from the senior and youth bands. Downshire is also able to provide instruments to new members and can arrange tuition to anyone who is interested in one-to-one classes.
Youth and neginner bands meet from 6.30pm - 7.45pm on Monday evenings at Malone Presbyterian Church. There are currently more than 40 young people involved in our Youth Programme and opportunities for youth and junior band players to progress through to our senior band, Downshire Brass.
Please get in touch via this link if you want to find out more about participating in any of these youth groups.
