Band On The Run is an innovative programme which builds on the progress achieved in the introductory learn with us projects.
Children are taught to play an instrument from the brass, string or woodwind family over a five-week period. Each child receives a weekly small group lessons to learn the basic techniques of their instrument, an ensemble rehearsal and a full band rehearsal. This project culminates in a concert to the school and families to showcase their achievements.
