A community brass band providing opportunity to participate in three different ensemble groups
We provide music entertainment for the local community and we teach music to people of all ages and abilities. We are raising money to build a new rehearsal facility in Amersham and to launch a music academy. This will enable us to expand and provide group music education which is accessible to all.Why the community needs us
Music making within a group has many positive aspects, it is fun, reduces stress, encourages social interaction, and can inspire people to take action to change their lives. Our plans for Amersham Band will extend the accessibility of learning music throughout the local community, in particular to young people and senior citizens. We also plan to make the building available to other community users when not in use by the band. This will help to alleviate the shortage of local facilitiesOur impact on the community
We have planning permission and we are raising £425,000 to build a bandroom. Our current rented space is now too small to meet our growing needs. A new bandroom will give us the ability to further expand our bands, and to develop our community brass and beginner groups. We also plan to open a brass academy for individual and group teaching. We currently reach nearly 100 musicians, we would like to expand our activities to another 200 to 300 people.
