We are a brass band based in South Buckinghamshire dating back to 1844. The band flourishes today with over 65 members.
Amersham Band has been promoted to the third section and we have a varied programme of activities including, concerts, contesting, recordings, film work, foreign tours and community events.
The free trombone workshop was the first in a series made possible by a grant from Chiltern District Council. The aim of these workshops is to enable young people to experience the fun of group music making.
The Saturday afternoon session was led by professional trombone players Paul Fisher and Lewis Rowlands, together with demonstrations from the band’s trombone section. At the end of the workshop, the entire group gave a performance of several pieces that they had worked on.
“The sound of 18 trombone students playing James Bond theme music was truly awesome.”
Caroline Perkins, organiser of the workshop
"This first workshop has been a huge success and we hope that it will help us to recruit new players."
Fred Harrison, Band Cairman
