We welcome new players of any ability, experience or age (between 6 and 18).  You do not need to have played before and you do not need an instrument as we can let you borrow one.

Please  e-mail ( or ring the administrator (Alice on 07976 672241) to let us know you are coming . . . . .. . although if you prefer you may just turn up on a Saturday morning and introduce yourselves.

We rehearse every Saturday in term time from 9.15 to 12 (11 for Junior Band) at Stockport Music Service, The Fairway, Offerton, Stockport, SK2 5DS.


When you first come down one of our MDs will have a quick listen and decide which band is the most appropriate for your standard.  If you are a complete beginner we will arrange for you to have a short session with one of our tutors to get you started.

We will make you feel very welcome as we are always glad to see new faces.


We do not charge for the first few rehearsals while you settle in.

Current subs are £36 per term or £100 if you wish to pay for a full year

Optional lessons are £6 for 20 minutes (individual lesson) or a shared lesson for £4 per person

If you require the hire of an instrument we currently charge £40 per year.

There is a small one-off uniform fee when you first join which lasts for the whole time you are at SSBB.
