Academy Band

Waratah Brass Academy Band was formed in 2011 to address a real need in the local community for children to have the opportunity to learn to play a brass or percussion instrument, at an affordable price.

Therese Curry is the musical director of Waratah Brass Academy Band.  She is a long-time brass player and member of Waratah Brass.

With instruments, music and resources provided by Waratah Brass, Therese, together with a small number of committed members of Waratah Brass, provide weekly one-on-one and small group tuition in addition to a band rehearsal for energetic learners.  The band includes learners of all ages. 

The band is growing in skill and confidence and now provide pre-concert entertainment for Waratah Brass at their Waratah Brass Presents series of concerts.  The band also plays in the annual Anzac Day March & Services.

If you know anyone (no matter how young or old) who would like to learn to play please contact the band.
