Something that the Barton Band family are extremely proud of is its comprehensive Education programme or EducateBrass.Educatebrass

For many years now we have been using our expertise in music to train and nurture the musicians of the future. Many of our members of the Community and Ensemble bands have worked their way up to the places they have earned today.

How much does this cost?
