About the Brass Academy

The Brass Academy was founded in 2012 by Joanne Sykes, and is aimed at teaching children in the Midsomer Norton and Radstock area how to play. We have two practices each week – Tuesday evening at 6:15pm for the Training Band and Friday evening at 6:15pm for Beginners.

Beginners caters for children who have never played an instrument before – we will provide tuition to get them off the ground and, depending on availability, an instrument to help them learn with (a small rental charge applies).

Our training band currently has around 20 members all of differing ages and ability who have fun on a Tuesday evening learning new pieces.
