Learners & New Members

e normally admit new members either through a learners class where children from the age of 9 are tutored in reading music and playing the flute or percussion instruments or both, or by admitting people who already play.   The present age group is from about 9 years to retirement.

We offer our members a grounding in music to a very high standard, and each year we compete in the NIBA World Championships for Flute Bands.  A contest we sometime soon would like to win.

If you would like to join, and feel you can meet the challange to play the music written by the masters then Contact Us for details.

Items for Sale

The Band has, over a few years, standardised most of it's instruments, and so we have a number of surplus flutes that we no longer use.  These instruments which are in very good condition, are going to be offered for sale on a first come first served basis.   A list of instruments has been prepared and is available from Alex upon request.

The band are also selling their old Street Uniform (see our photo gallery) which is in very good condition.   Interested parties should Contact our Secretary for details.

A Substantial Music Library

ver the years we have built up a very substantial Music Library.  We would like to add to this Library by offering arrangements of scores and parts on an exchange of music basis.  We are looking for arrangements to suit a championship type band as well as music to be used in concerts.  In return we can offer music arranged for junior bands right up to championship standard.  Please Note: Some music will only be available from the arranger because of copyright.

Are you a small flute band with a limited musical library?  Perhaps looking for something new to play be it at Concert, Contest, or on Parade.  If you think we can help then Drop us a Note and we will endeavour to assist.
