Meet the players

We are a friendly group of amateur musicians who enjoy getting together to play a wide variety of music.

Louise was born in Stroud and began playing in Chalford training band at the age of 7. By the age of 15 she was their principal cornet and then went to university at the age of 18 to study English and Music. In 1986 she moved to Southampton to do her PGCE and began her teaching career at New Milton Junior School, Hampshire.

She joined Bournemouth Concert Brass, married in 1990, had two wonderful children and remained down south until 2013. She was music co-ordinator and entered private pupils for their ABRSM exams.

She is now living in Gloucester and plays with three local bands, Nailsworth, Frampton and Gloucester Charter Band. Louise is really looking forward to training young musicians again.

Sarah grew up in Frampton on Severn and started playing with the band while still at primary school!

After a few years on cornet she moved to euphonium and has loved the instrument ever since.

Sarah became Chair in 2017.
