The Geelong Concert Band will be forming a new Workshop Band from term 2, 2011. This means that we are looking for people who would like to learn to play an instrument. You don’t need to have any experience in playing or reading music – we will teach you all the skills required to become a budding musician.
We will be holding an information evening where you can hear the instruments played and try them out for yourself before you decide on what instrument you would like to play.
The information evening will be held on THURSDAY MARCH 24th starting at 7:00pm at Robertson Hall, Geelong College Preparatory School (enter off Minerva Rd and follow the road to the end). If you have any questions before the night, please contact Trish Kinrade on 0417 148 193.
