Liberty have been having a great time letting the primary schools in our local area know about the opportunities available with us...and we've got some more visits lined up.
We take some of biggest and loudest instruments into an assembly and see how much noise we can get the pupils to make, and then encourage the pupils to come and check out a Liberty rehearsal.
Liberty's junior band for 9-12 year olds rehearses on a Thursday night before our Senior corps meets. Tuition is given by the older members of our senior band with our experienced staff on hand to give support where needed. That way 2 groups of young people get to develop skills at the same time....and all the while making sure we keep it fun. Half of our current brass line first performed in our junior band so it's been a great way of growing our organisation.
