Amersham Band becomes the lead BAND-TIME Partner

Amersham Band are delighted to be the lead brass band partner for BAND-TIME, which is a new brass teaching method for schools.

The long term future of the brass band movement is dependent on a supply of young musicians and it is great to see a new initiative to introduce children to the fun and pleasure of group music making. The structured approach offered by the BAND-TIME method will help children develop their listening and teamwork skills; abilities which are all-important when progressing into band and ensemble playing.

Fred Harrison, Chairman of Amersham Band, said “I think it is clear that the BAND-TIME method will give children a flying start into a lifetime of enjoyment and appreciation of music, For those that want to progress into the brass band world, it will provide the ideal foundation.”
