Any person interested in joining the band or requiring any further information please contact any of the band committee by telephone or Email.

Any player visiting or moving to the Whitehaven or surrounding area is very  welcome to join us at our rehearsals or learner classes.

Whitehaven Brass Band is particularly keen to support young brass and percussion players from local schools and surrounding areas and invite these players to join our learner groups and band, please contact us for details.  All committee members and those involved in teaching and supporting the learner groups have had CRB checks completed and the band has a formal Child Protection Policy supported by the British Federation of Brass Bands a copy of which is available to any band member or parent. We are also keen to encourage parents of younger players to support the learners and they are invited to be present at teaching sessions if they wish to do so.

Our learner classes are structured and follow the recently developed Boosey and Hawkes Brass Band method and materials.

There is no charge for tuition but our aim is to develop players for the senior band.

Loan of instruments is FREE although any person wishing to use their own instrument may do so if they wish.

There are no age restrictions for joining our band or learner classes so if you are learning brass or percussion, want to give it a try, or have played brass or percussion in the past and want to take up playing again we would welcome hearing from you.
