Thoughts on the Training Band from Oliver Oliver has been playing with the Training Band for two terms. He had been learning to play the cornet for a year at school when he started. Alison the Training Band leader shows incredible patience and great nurturing skills with the childrens questions, she is great at getting their attention. She gently talks the group through all aspects of playing a piece, keys, time, dynamics/rythem as well as other things like posture and the need to keep an eye on the band leader! Playing with the band has given me a greater understanding of what goes into making a piece of music sound musical. The band plays together for hour so if you don't live nearby there is no complaints when parents 'sit in' during the session. If you are learning to play a brass instrument I would recommend joining as it is a good way to develop your musical knowledge and ability. Its amazing how quickly pieces of music sound good even at this beginner level. From Oliver Training Band
