At BHMY we offer an inclusive activity where children and adults can learn together and perform together. Our aim is to get everyone marching and playing and instrument. Not everyone is of a very high standard but everyone works together to flourish as a group.
EVERYONE can succeed at BHMY.
There IS opportunity for furthering musical ability and talent. There’s opportunity for leadership and developing ideas. There’s opportunity for volunteering and DofE work alongside other skills that are highly valued on college applications and UCAS forms. There’s a sense of belonging; people make lifelong friendships and become part of the family.
At BHMY the most talented are not always the best players or the best marchers or indeed both at the same time!! They’re not always those that have the grades on their instruments. At BHMY we value commitment, honesty, perseverance, teamwork, determination, creativity, responsibility, respect, leadership and discipline as much as we value musicianship and deportment.
BHMY is so much more than just educating children on how to play an instrument and how to march.
Another rehearsal night!
Some of our members are off on study leave but we will still be at the school tonight putting the Cadets through their paces and training them up for the Main Band.
This is our last session before half term. We are taking the whole week off due to having pushed so hard since January for our concert and for KBBT.
Our second big performance of 2018 took place on Saturday. With that over and done with we move on to the next challenges.
