Run by parents and professional tutors for parents of children who want to learn a musical instrument in a fun and supportive environment
We meet Saturday mornings at Manorbrook School, Thornbury, and run a variety of activities for children aged between 4 and 18. Our aim is to remove barriers to learning an instrument and to make it fun!
Musicians can also choose to take part in choir, theory lessons, ensembles, or swing/jazz ensembles
This is open to any brass or wind player and there’s some great swing, blues, jazz and rock music to play. We learn together how to improvise. The group is led by our trombone tutor, Chris White-Horne, who is also the musical director of the Thornbury Swing Band. The session runs at the same time as the choir and theory classes.
