World Heart Beat

The 50 and a Half State Band


Thursday 4pm-5pm
World Heart Beat Music Academy, 58 Kimber Rd

The 50 and a half State Band is a concert band which is for flutes, clarinets, bassoons, saxophones, trumpets, trombones, French horns percussion for grade 1 or grade 2 players and under. The 50 and half state band feeds into the 51st State Band which is one of the largest youth concert bands in London, providing big opportunities for well over 100 musicians between 7 and 18 years old, in and around the London Borough of Wandsworth.

The band was inspired by the American Band Method, where young musicians only need to be able to play a few notes on their instruments in order to join. We’ve proved over several years, that playing in a band is the best way for children and young musicians to make fast progress. The music we play is fun, exciting, and often challenging. Our players have to work hard, but we think the results are worth it! As part of the band projects instruments and tuition can be provided in French Horn, Trumpet, Trombone, saxophone and clarinet on Thursdays too.
