Young musicians standout

MEMBERS of South Gippsland Shire Brass Band’s Training Band displayed their newfound talents at the band’s 125th anniversary concert at the Dakers Centre in Leongatha recently.

Among the crowd was South Gippsland Shire Council deputy mayor Cr Maxine Kiel, who told council last Wednesday the musicians were “fantastic” and appreciated the support council gave to the band.

The children and adults have learning music for just over a year and enjoyed the chance to perform to the public. The training band meets at the Leongatha Courthouse every Wednesday evening, with free lessons available to children and adult learners alike. To find out more, email sgsbb@outlook.com

On the beat: Amber Denbrok, five, is learning to play the drums under the tuition of South Gippsland Shire Brass Band percussionist Greg Wright. The junior drum kit was funded by a donation from band supporter Jan Appleton of Korumburra.
