Herefordshire Youth Brass Bands consist of three levels of player. Junior players will begin with a session at 5:00pm with Liessa Price. They will then be joined by intermediate players at 5:30pm and finish their session at 6:00pm. Intermediate players will start at 5:30pm with a rehearsal alongside beginner players. They will then move into the main session with John Griffiths and the more advanced players from approximately 6:15pm, finishing at 7:00pm. More advanced players will rehearse with John Griffiths between 5:30pm and 7:00pm. The tutors will give indications as to which sessions brass players should attend.
