Training Band

Training Band

The Training Band is run by Julie Brown and Linda Beer and they hold their practice on a Tuesday evening. There is a beginners group who rehearse 6pm-6.45pm and a 2nd group for those who are slightly further on who rehearse 6.45pm-7.30pm.

The training band is open to all children (and grown-ups!) aged 6 years+. There are around 15 training band members at the moment.

Instruments, tuition and uniform are provided FREE of charge. It’s a very family friendly environment where everyone can get involved.

If you would like to come and see what it’s all about, or even just try one practise to see if you like it, then come along! No need to book, just turn up! Julie and Linda will be delighted to see you!


Bideford Town Band members Cyril Pascoe and Sarah Watts also provide brass tuition to pupils of Westcroft School, Bideford on a Friday afternoon. They also run two groups, similar to the training band, at 2-2.30 and 2.30-3.10.

If you are interested in joining our Westcroft group please email our secretary Becky Frisby – or contact Westcroft School.
