Thank You

Thanks to the generous support of the Devon & Torbay Music Education Hubs, we are able to offer this opportunity free of charge to all students residing or studying in Devon.

We’d also like to extend a huge thank you to all the professional musicians who have put so much time and energy into this project – please take some time to check out their websites at the foot of this page.


The very first ensemble I played in was a junior youth brass group in Exeter – even from afar, getting the opportunity to be back playing with young Devon brass players is absolutely amazing!
