Training Band

The Skelmanthorpe Training Band (launched in 2010)  encourages players to develop their musicality and provide the opportunity of playing in a brass band regardless of age, experience or ability.

The Training Band is organised by members of the Skelmanthorpe  Brass Band Community and its current Musical Director is Robert Jaggar, who has a long standing relationship with the community as player, tutor and MD. He is currently the Soprano cornet player with the Hammonds Band.






Playing and non-playing members of the Brass Band Community are actively involved in encouraging the training band by sitting in on its weekly rehearsal.

The Training Band enjoy performing at a variety of concerts and events throughout the year.

Whist members of the Training Band enjoy playing weekly at our rehearsals, learning new skills and techniques in a fun way, they are also encouraged to expand their brass band knowledge by joining our Community Band (non contesting) or other local bands to experience competitions.

If you are interested in joining , please contact Catherine Rock or Rachel Taylor at the Skelmanthorpe Band’s email address:
