Amersham Band is a brass band dating back to 1843. Our objective is to improve, develop and advance the public education in, and appreciation of, brass band music through the presentation of public concerts and practice and performance. The strategy of the band is to strive for excellence by providing better teaching and education in brass playing whilst also extending opportunities for all to benefit from group music-making.
The band has launched a community band for developing players and also a beginner teaching programme. Overall membership has increased to around 100 members. Our group teaching programme for beginners has attracted many new players, mostly young people, who can benefit from the experience of playing music in a group. The band can provide instruments on loan and has a bursary fund to support those who are financially disadvantaged.
