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.

SBA is back rehearsing as normal and following social distancing guidelines.

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

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

If you are interested in joining us, please contact our secretary via email 

and we can arrange a taster session, or just pop in at a rehearsal to see us.

From experienced players to complete beginners - all are welcome!
