The first Beginner Band class of the Forbes Town & District Band is starting on Monday, 20th February. Beginner Band is a great way of encouraging aspiring musicians to learn a musical instrument to assist with cognitive development, sharpen brain pathways and interact in a musical team.
Justin Screen of Mitchell Conservatorium has lead the Forbes Town & District Band since 2011 and has over 20 years’ experience teaching woodwind for school and leading concert bands.
The Beginner Band class is on Mondays from 6.00 to 7.00 pm during school term at the recently renovated Forbes Town Band Hall at 165 Rankin Street. All ages from eight to eighty plus are welcome.
Membership is $20 per year for beginners. The Band has a large range of instruments for hire for $50 per year.
