Did you play the trombone in a previous life? Were you a saxophone player in your high school band? Connect with your musical past – join our band!
Shy about joining a group of strangers? Bring a friend. Or get in touch with some of the people who played with you in high school. Make it a musical reunion!
Musical wannabees are also welcomed. Even if you have not previously played an instrument, come and learn with us.
Most band members are retired from jobs that did not involve music. We come from all backgrounds with different abilities. Learning anything new can be challenging. We will help you get started or brush up on your playing skills. We can help you find a suitable instrument to rent, purchase, or a place to repair your instrument. Our mission is to create a nurturing adventurous environment. Contact Sally and make a plan to fit your situation, or arrange to come and see what we do.
The full band rehearses once a week on Tuesday mornings in Glencoe, IL. Smaller group lessons may be necessary, especially if you are just beginning. There is no substitute for practicing and no better way to play than joining our band.
