Training Band

Whether you are 6 or 60, Colin Forster and Rob Folland, our Training Band Musical Directors will help you develop your playing skills - from your first blow right through to joining the main band. 


There really is no excuse!

 

We had a fantastic year in 2018.   We played at the opening of Cheltenham Lido and built up to a full band tour to Belgium in the summer, which featured 3 full concerts in 4 days.  Both main band and training band were honoured to take part in events to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the 1st World War in November, including playing at the Everyman Theatre.  We finished the year with 2 Christmas concerts and played carols at GWSR.  We are playing at the Lido and at numerous fetes this summer.  All abilities are welcome at these most enjoyable events.

 

 

The training band meets on Fridays from 6.30 to 7.30pm at our band room at the Charlton Kings Library.  There is also a beginners and Improvers band which meet at 6:30 to 7:30pm each Monday at  The Kings Hall, Charlton Kings.  

 Cheltenham Silver Training Band has been running for many years and has successfully coached dozens of players through to the main band and beyond. Complete beginners start learning to play with individual tuition before progressing to the the beginners band and when ready, to the training band. Trainees are encouraged to join the main band as their playing improves.
