Why Lofthouse 2000 Brass Band?
If you’re looking for an excuse to pick up your instrument again, want to boost your skills or accelerate your learning then come and be a part of Lofthouse 2000 Brass Band.
Unsure whether joining a brass band is right for you? To help you decide we give all our new members a whole month absolutely FREE, so come along and try us out!
Our goal is to help musicians progress on their instrument, boost their confidence and team working skills and develop their passion for music.
Unlike many other bands, we have no minimum grade requirements and there are no auditions to become a member. However, attending senior band rehearsals does require you to have some playing experience and an ability to read music. For those who have limited or no musical experience, we have our training band, Brass Roots, where full tuition is given.
We pride ourselves on being a not-for-profit charity organisation which is run by a dedicated committee who volunteer their time to help with the day-to-day running of the band.
Being a member of Lofthouse 2000 also means that you can put forward suggestions on the musical repertoire and ways in which we can grow and evolve as a group.

I really want to come but I don’t know if I can commit to every week. Is that ok? No need to commit to every week – obviously, we want you to attend as many rehearsals as possible, which is beneficial to both you and the band, but we get that people have busy schedules! Just keep in touch and let us know if you are unable to make rehearsals.
Vacancies – We are pleased to say that interest from new members has hugely increased over the past few months. If you are interested in a specific vacancy or are wanting to join us, please get in touch with us here!
