Honiton Band is on the lookout for brass players to join its training section this autumn.

The group set up its training section last year to provide affordable opportunities for people to learn to read music and play a musical instrument.

With a new term starting next month, the band is extending an invitation to anyone aged eight or over who would like to learn a brass instrument or take up playing again.

The band has instruments available to loan, tuition sessions are held on Wednesday evenings, between 6.30pm and 7.15pm, at The Beehive in Dowell Street.

Richard Brain, band trombone player and training band tutor, said: ““We know that learning to play an instrument can sometimes feel a bit daunting, and can often be expensive.#

“Our training band was set up to provide affordable opportunities for local people to learn to play a brass instrument in a relaxed environment.”
