Join the Band - make music.

The Ilfracombe & District Youth Band "Blazing Sounds" welcomes young people aged six to eighteen, living in Ilfracombe and the surrounding villages.   If any adults would like to join, bandmaster Emma would be very pleased to hear from you as well.
Bands need clarinet players.
If you are already having individual music lessons, you will find that joining in with other players will help you improve.
But if you have never played before, don't worry, we can give beginners instruction on brass and woodwind instruments.

If you haven't got an instrument of your own we have a wide selection of band instruments available on loan - e.g. trumpet, cornet, saxophone, clarinet, trombone,euphonium.
You will start in the Training section of the band. More confident musicians can progress to the Main Band which takes part in public performances.
Membership subscription is just £1 per week.
