Welcome to Shepway Brass Academy

An exciting and affordable youth project that is bringing Brass Band music to a younger generation, plus many more benefits to those taking part - see our section WHY PLAY?

Band members range from beginner level upwards, are aged 8-21, and drawn from the south-east Kent area around Folkestone.

The band rehearses on Saturday mornings during term time at Community Hall, Christ Church CE Primary Academy, Brockman Road, Folkestone CT20 1DJ.

SBA has continued throughout the pandemic, meeting via zoom or in socially distanced groups outdoors when allowed.

Each session costs just £3.00 per week (paid termly) and includes provision of an instrument (subject to availability).

The band is led by Paul Driscoll, with tuition given by various experienced brass musicians.

If you are interested please just pop in to see us for a taster session- players and non-players are welcome!!
