Sydney Homeschool Community Band – Weekly

February 9 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

$150

This is an all ages community band (we are especially looking for experienced adults/older musicians to help create a solid foundation for the band and encourage the less experienced musicians). Any instrument is welcome (accordion, bass, clarinet, cello, flute, guitar, keyboard, percussion, saxophone, trombone, trumpet, tuba, ukulele, violin and all the others!) And all levels are welcome.

It’s not your usual concert band – more a “street orchestra” playing music influenced by World, Folk, Jazz, Klezmer, Tarantella, Gypsy, and Celtic styles and most importantly… fun!

We rehearse at West Pymble Scout Hall on Thursdays 10-10:45 (same place as the homeschool choir – the 8-12 yrs and adult/teen choir start after the band finishes if you’d like to do both. The 4-7yrs choir is the same time as the band). 

The cost is $150 with siblings $120 and adults $80 (to entice them along!) Creative Kids Voucher available.

We won’t have trials (there’s nothing existing yet to trial) as we’re looking for people to commit to a term and be part of making something together. I’m looking forward to seeing what we can create!!

Here’s a video of a band called The Con Artists. This is the sort of band we are creating although we won’t play as fast as this song goes! https://www.reverbnation.com/artist/video/934613
