Leeming Training Band

Musical Director: Steven Harmer

A new Leeming Training Band (LTB) starts on Saturday 19th October 2019 with rehearsals from 9 to 10am each Saturday during the school term.  These are held at the usual LACB rehearsal venue – Leeming High School Performing Arts Center (click here for more details).

22 years ago the Leeming Concert Band (LCB) began as a training band with a small group of novice musicians learning the basics of their instruments and concert band playing.  Over the last 22 years the LCB has developed and improved to  the point where some developed playing skill is required to be able to join the LCB

The LTB gives new musicians, lapsed/returning musicians or those learning new instruments, the opportunity to join and play in a concert band whilst developing their musical skills.  We draw on our experience and knowledge of adult community band development to help aspiring performers develop their skill and experience levels in a supportive group environment.

The LTB works on a 2 year training cycle.  The first Training Band progressed from the start of the cycle in October 2017 to competing in, and winning, the D grade of the State Band Competition in June 2019. The new training cycle commences on 19 October 2019 to allow beginners to start at the point the existing LTB members began in 2017.
