The Little Acorns
(SFB Training Band)


The Little Acorns were formed in Summer 2010 in order to give beginners the opportunity to learn to play a brass or percussion instrument together.

Rehearsals take place every Monday evening from 6.30-7pm, and are run by Christine (MD), along with help from some of the Senior Band members. Many of The Little Acorns have never played an instrument before joining, and we provide each member with their own instrument to practice with if they do not already have one.

When beginners feel ready, they are encouraged to sit next to a Senior Band member during rehearsals, as we feel this gives them great experience. Over the years, many of The Little Acorns have developed and are now playing and contesting in the Senior band. 

There are no age restrictions for The Little Acorns - we even allow parents and grandparents to join if they have an interest in learning to play a brass or percussion instrument.

If you would like more information please contact Christine (MD) or Sharon (Secretary). Telephone numbers are on our 'Contact Us' page.
