Joining the Band
Here at Thurmaston Marching Brass, we welcome new Band Members to join us through our Band Trainees programme and doing this is easy.
To join the Thurmaston Scout and Guide Band you have to be a member of the Scout Organisation or Girl Guiding from any group, not just Thurmaston.
We run a Band Trainees programme on a Monday night (18:00-19:00) at our Thurmaston Headquarters and during this time, which lasts several months, we teach our trainees to march, play an instrument and read music; no prior knowledge of these is required.
In addition to this the Band provides each Trainee with a musical instrument.
All of this for just £1 a week!
At the end of the Trainee Programme, family and friends are invited to a graduation ceremony to celebrate our newest band members.
We have just started a new trainees programme, and if you would like to join this programme or learn more about the Band please get in contact with us via the form on our home page, we would love to hear from you.
Covid-19: We are currently undertaking one-on-one sessions with our Trainees and Younger Band Members over Zoom, while the current Government restrictions are in place. We look forward to meeting and training in person when the restrictions are relaxed.
