Ways of joining the band in 2012!
There are two ways of joining the Youth Band:-
In term-time, come along to the Youth
Band rehearsal on Monday evening (7.00pm - 8.30p.m. ) in Spennymoor Town
Hall , meet the Bandmaster,
George Nicklin, and discuss with him the instrument you already play or
the new instrument you would like to learn.
(Enter via the red door
near the arch under
the Town Hall clock)
If you already know
who plays in the Youth Band, it would be best to come along with
your friend, who can introduce you to the Bandmaster.
Contact the Youth Band Secretary,
Dr. John Chapman, by
firstname.lastname@example.org and we can discuss what
you'd like to do and when the next rehearsals will be held.
Youth Band rehearsals start at 7p.m.
prompt on Monday evenings in school term-time, going on for 1½ hours
with a short break at 8p.m.
There is a half-termly sub of
£15.00, which you or your parents can pay to the Treasurer at the first
rehearsal after the school holidays. Cheques or cash but not credit cards
It is part of the Bandmaster's role
to provide lessons to anyone in the Youth Band whose musical progress
suggests it. Youth Band lessons last for 20- 30 minutes, with a rota agreed
between the Bandmaster and the player for Mondays and Tuesdays (5.30p.m. -
7p.m. ). It is very important that any player unable to attend their lesson
gets in touch with the Bandmaster to let him know at least one day before
the missed lesson.
Missed lessons cost the Youth Band
financially and if you repeatedly miss music lessons without warning, the
Youth Band reserves the right to cancel your 'free to members' music
