Interested in playing the Cornet? The cornet is a close relative of the trumpet. The standard cornet in brass bands is the Bb cornet. The instrument’s pitch range is the same as that of the trumpet. The cornet is the most numerous instrument in the brass band, with about a third of the players playing cornets.
There are currently three tutors working with the Music Trust who have a wealth of experience in all fields of brass performance, teaching and ensemble training.
The brass department currently offers tuition in whole class (first access), small group and individual settings. We work in the majority of schools in Calderdale and are also able to accommodate pupils from outside the area at Heath Campus in the evenings.
Every school in Calderdale has enrolment forms containing pricing information as well as contact details for the Music Trust. These forms can also be picked up from Heath Campus, Free School Lane, Halifax. Depending on your requirements, lessons normally run for a full term before any adjustments can be made due to invoicing and timetabling requirements. Lessons are available either at school or at Heath during evenings.
Information or advice can be obtained by ringing the Music Trust at Heath Campus on 01422 303060 or [email protected]
