You don’t have to be a virtuoso! If you:
- Have some playing experience of any kind of wind or brass instrument, or percussion
- Can read music
- Can spare Tuesday evenings for practice
Then we’ll give you a warm welcome!
Sold your instrument when you left school? No problem – we have instruments you can borrow, including drum kit, timpani, cornet, euphonium, tuba, trombone, bassoon, piccolo and glockenspiel.
In particular, we would love to find a French horn player, bass brass (e.g. tuba or euphonium) and a timpani player – we have a lovely set of timps and no-one to play them!
We don’t audition new members, so you are welcome to come along and see if you enjoy it; or you can drop us a message if you like so that someone will know to look out for you. As a rough guide, we mostly play music around grade 4-6 standard, depending on the part.
We look forward to meeting you!
We meet at 19:15 for a 19:30 start (finishing at 21:30), every Tuesday evening at the Scout Headquarters on Trippet Lane, Sheffield S1 4EL. Facing the Scout Shop, there’s a wooden double door to the left of the shop. Come in through the door, up the stairs in front of you, turn left at the top and walk down the corridor all the way to the large room at the end.
