More than 250 children take part in brass and percussion at the Music Centre.
All brass and percussion groups take part in at least three public performances each year.
All school children are welcome to audition (groups are graded according to ability).
Most children start with the Junior Brass Band or Repercussions (a percussion ensemble) and progress to other groups as they develop.
