Do you play a woodwind or brass instrument, or percussion?
Would you like to get involved in a local, established and friendly band?
The Warsash Band aims to give local people the chance to take part in quality music making, and as such, we are always on the lookout for new members. If you'd like to join us, please send us a message to check whether we have space in your section.
We suggest a minimum standard of around grade 6 or equivalent for the main band. If you feel the need to build up your confidence then you can always try the training section first (minimum standard grade 2 or equivalent). Both the training section and the main band have members of all ages, from school children to pensioners.
We rehearse every Thursday 6:30pm - 7:30pm (training section), and 7:45pm - 9:45pm (main band), at St Mary's Church in Warsash. (Please note that rehearsals are currently suspended due to the covid‑19 outbreak. However, we still encourage you to get in touch with us if you're interested in playing in the band, and we'll be happy to welcome you once the situation returns to normal.) There is a subscription charge of £40 per year (or £80 per year for family membership), which goes towards new music and instruments. However, you are welcome to come along for a couple of weeks to see how you enjoy it before committing to this.
We're happy to welcome new members whatever you play, but there are some instruments we have a particular need for. If you play any of the following then we would be delighted to hear from you.
