DVCB Development Band

The DVCB Development Band has been formed to cater for students and adults who wish to start playing in a concert band.

The Development Band will provide professional instructions in skill development and ensemble playing, with rehearsals on Wednesdays from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm (during school terms) at our bandrooms in the Memorial Hall, Circle Street, New Norfolk.

We invite players of woodwind, brass and percussion instruments to join our program.

Instruments will be provided for percussion players but woodwind and brass players will need to provide their own instruments.

It is recommended that those wishing to join this exciting program have some basic ability in reading and playing music.

The Band has been playing with their conductor Susan Reppion-Brooke for over two years. We are growing in numbers and confidence, and we have played at several events over the past years including the Derwent Valley Autumn Festival, The Annual Christmas Concert with the senior Band and this year, we played at the Bushy Park Show.
