Recruit band

This year, Våland skolekorps offers the opportunity to join what we call the recruit band. The recruit band is for those who are born in 2011 and older who want to learn to play an instrument and to play with others in a school band. The recruit band has its rehearsals at the Music Room at Våland school on Wednesdays from 16:00 to 17:00. The recruits also get time for weekly individual lessons (30 min). 

Start-up date will be on Wednesday 16th of February (and beyond). The goal is that the recruits during approx. half a year should have learned to play their instrument so well that they can start playing with the main band, Våland skolekorps. The main band consists of musicians from 6th grade and all the way up to 3rd in high school (age 19).
