If you’re a student, just got your A-level results and are looking to take up a place in one of Sheffields two universities in the coming weeks, firstly, well done! You’ll be joining many fellow students in a bustling, historic and friendly city.
If you’re a brass player or percussionist and would like to keep up with your playing whilst you’re at Sheffield, regardless of your standard and whether or not you’re studying music, there are many bands of differing standards that are certain to provide an outlet for your musical needs!
We have everything from community (non-contesting) bands through fourth, third, second, first and championship section bands – ten in all, and you’ll find links to many of them on these pages. All the bands will offer you a warm friendly welcome. Many of us were students once (some still are) and remember what it was like being away from home for the first time.
So, don’t leave that trombone, cornet, euphonium or horn gathering dust. Bring it along and join the fun! (Many bands also have instruments available for loan, so if the coach driver won’t let you bring your Bb tuba on the bus, there’s a chance there is one waiting for you).
