BECOME A MEMBER
Perhaps you gave up playing your instrument after you left school but now feel you are ready to pick it up again. Perhaps you are reasonably proficient at music but would like to play with a group of people who consider that enjoying each other's company is as important as improving your music?
We are tolerant of each other's mistakes, supportive of each other's progress and, while eager to further develop our musical skills, we also like to enjoy ourselves.
The playing standard ranges from grades 2-5, with competent beginners to more experienced players. Come and have a listen or join in one of the practice sessions. Visitors are always welcome to attend, but must confirm with the Secretary prior to coming.
