Burton Joyce Community Brass

Burton Joyce Community Brass (formerly Carlton Brass Training Band) provide music making opportunities for local people of all ages (our current membership boasts both primary school children and pensioners). We perform at the occasional contest, as an unregistered band, but primarily play at local community events, put on entertainment concerts and generally have a good time doing it.

The band runs two main sessions a week and also a beginners session.

Tuesdays 7:30 – 9:00pm (followed by a visit to the pub for the adults)

Fridays: Beginners 6:00 – 7:00pm, Regular practice 7:00 – 9:00pm

Interested in joining us?

Burton Joyce Coomunity Brass (formerly Carlton Training Band) welcomes local people of all ages and abilities. Where possible we will provide you with an instrument and provide individual and group tuition. All we ask in return is that you are dedicated, attend regularly and strive to improve your playing. We particularly welcome parents to attend with their children so they can encourage each other in their music making.

  1. I’ve left a message on your mobile, Heather, but wanted to make sure that you received it. I used to play the Baritone in a Brass band many years ago and would like to pick it up again. I gave the instrument back to the village band when I left Lincolnshire, so haven’t had chance to practice since. I’m now back in Notts since living abroad for a few years and would like to come along to one of your rehearsals and see if I still have any puff left in me. I’m working part time so I’m also free some days at the moment, if you’d like to meet me at another time. I’ve played various instruments/read music for over 50 years, most recently playing guitar and singing at open mic sessions so I’m not shy at “having a go” in front of others. I’m currently living in Arnold but due to move to Calverton this month and I have my own car. My mobile number is 0785 1065421. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
