HCT introduces a group of students to playing together. Since September 2019, Rosanne van Bers has been conducting the training band. Once you’ve reached a certain level with your lessons, often after a year, then you can join in this cozy band. You learn to play together with other musicians and completely different instruments! Did you take a few steps with the training orchestra (mostly HaFa exam B), then you might be able to play in the large orchestra of HCT!
The rehearsals are on Tuesday from 19.15 – 20.00 in De Rank, Druivenstraat 35, 1033 JR Amsterdam Noord.
During the rehearsals of the training band much is learned, besides much fun. Musical terms such as prelude, fermate, a tempo, crescendo etc. are explained and applied in music. Attention is also paid to listening to each other and the purity of playing together. The music that is played varies from pop, film music to classical music.
The training band is not only for youth but also for adults! If you feel like playing with us, come by to come and listen/play on Tuesday night. For more information, mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or use the contact page.
