Lostwithiel Youth and Training Band
Youngsters and young at hearts read on...
Welcome to the world of Brass Bands.
Banding is a truly great hobby where you can make life time friends and become part of a nationwide movement. Making music in a group is always inspiring and by learning to play a brass instrument in a band you will quickly find this out for yourself.
Banding in Cornwall offers the young player a world of opportunity. The Cornish youth band, to which all bands send players, is one of the finest in the country. The county has a good number of bands allowing players to either stay with their local band and just enjoy themselves or to progress to Champion section bands. Young players from Cornwall have gone on to play with the top bands in the country on a semi-professional basis. All the top orchestras have former bandsmen in them, brass bands teach music to a high standard.
Whatever your ambition, joining Lostwithiel Band can help make it happen. Its a fun, active and healthy hobby which will last for a life time. Don't forget that it has been shown that banding improves school exam success and is good for reading, mathematics and general confidence and competence. Thousands play, come and find out why.
