Egham Youth Band
Egham Youth Band (EYB) was formed in January 2016 following the promotion of the Band's existing Training Band that was formed in September of 2010. The Band currently consists of over 20 talented young players ranging from ages 9 to 16. EYB draws players from a wide area encompassing North Surrey, East Berkshire and West Middlesex. The band is very fortunate to have had players joining on a wide range of instruments and are therefore able to play a variety of music scored for brass band, ranging from music by The Beatles to film scores. EYB have make many local appearances throughout the year under MD Gareth Green.
The band readily welcomes new players on all instruments, in particular cornet players. Any new players must have had a basic amount of tuition as all training is done as a band. All new members need to be able to read music and know basic fingering/slide positions as a minimum and be at Grade 3 or equivalent standard Rehearsals are held every Monday evening, 6:30-7:30pm at the Egham Bandroom.
