Pontardulais Town Band are serious about the future of brass musicianship, and we have an excellent provision for beginners and learners of all ages and abilities.
The Junior Band is fortunate to be under the direction of Noel Bertram, a very experienced professional performer, conductor and educator. The Junior Band is a vital part of the musical life at Bont, and performs regularly with the Senior Band as well as an ensemble in its own right. The Junior Band takes part in contests and we are very proud of their successes.
The Junior Band rehearses on Sundays 5:30pm-6:30pm at the band room in Pontardulais.
The Beginners’ Group provides an opportunity for those wishing to start playing a brass instrument. Instruments are provided by the band and no experience or knowledge of music is required.
The Beginners’ Group rehearses at 4:45pm on Sundays at the band room in Pontardulais.
Would you like to take part in either group? Interested in learning how to play brass or percussion? Get in touch!
