New Year - New Opportunities

Downshire Youth Inititative is on a major recruitment drive in 2016 to expand its Youth, Junior and Learner Bands.  

Downshire is actively seeking to recruit children for its beginners class on Monday nights - children from 7 years and up who are interested in learning a brass instrument will receive free tuition and a free instrument during the remainder of the academic year.   Expert tutors will provide group and one-to-one tuition over the first 12 weeks before children progress to the Junior Band.

We are also recruiting young players of around grade 1standard for our Junior Band and more experienced players of around grade 3 standard and above for our Youth Band.  The band is based on the Lisburn Road in Belfast with more than 30 children involved in the current Youth Programme and a further 35 players involved in the senior band.

Please get in touch via this link if you want to find out more about participating in any of our Youth Ensembles.
