|Dear Putney Musicians and Budding Musicians,|
We're starting up a new, traditional British Brass Band for Putney, which will be led by professional musicians and will be accessible for people of all ages and musical experience (or none!)
We plan to rehearse in SW15 on Wednesday evenings. Coaching can be provided for learner and progressing players and we have a stock of instruments too.
We are certainly looking also to recruit experienced players to form the core of the band and we're seeking people who used to play (doesn't matter how many years ago) and who could be tempted to make a musical comeback :-)
We aim to build our band into a valuable community resource for Putney, capable of supporting local churches, schools and other organisations, and available to assist at Civic events etc.
If we can be permitted to blow our own trumpet for a minute (excuse the pun), we've helped establish new community bands like this in other parts of the capital and it continues to be a wonderful experience for all involved. Our new Putney Band would be part of our wider brass banding network and players would be able to join in Massed Bands central events with approx 100 musicians from the rest of our London network.
If a bit more background on brass banding is needed, we play cornets (trumpet), flugelhorn, tenor horns, baritone horns, trombones, euphoniums, tubas (basses) and percussion (inc drum kit). If you already play another instrument, the transition to brass can be achieved quite fast with some help and guidance.
If you are interested, or if you know someone who might be, please take a look at our website at www.fourhillsmusic.co.uk or send me an email on firstname.lastname@example.org or call me on 020.8366.0657 to discuss further.
Thanks for reading and please help us bring the inspiring sound of brass banding to the streets of Putney.
