The Tilbury Brass & Percussion Academy is the training arm of The Tilbury Band. We welcome both the young and young at heart to take part in our training and development brass band. The Academy Band aims to provide advanced tuition to players, increasing their musical knowledge, playing ability and providing experience in ensemble playing in preparation for moving on to the Tilbury Band (‘A’ Band).
The Brass & Percussion Academy was originally founded as The Tilbury Learners’ Ensemble in the 1970s and has made some excellent progress at helping musicians develop and blossom. Some members of the Academy Band come along to play their second or third instrument, or just to try something new. We are a welcoming group and are open to all.
Rehearsals take place in our own Band Hall on Dock Road, Tilbury from 5pm to 7pm on Sundays of Term Time. For more information, please call in during rehearsal times or contact us via the contact page.
