The training band meets every Tuesday at the bandroom between 6.30 and 7.30. The aim is to provide the experience of playing with others, as a band, with help from members of the Senior Band, so that in due course the players should be able to progress to the main band. Instruments are provided and the group is split up by abilities for part of the hour session. All players have a workbook for their own instrument but as a band arrangement so they can play parts as an ensemble.
The training band take part in several engagement each year at least one with the senior band and at other venues such as Eden Camp and Alba Rose Nursing home.
