Mr Roger Jones, who is the Musical Director at the The Royal Hospital School, Holbrook, Suffolk, visited 1334 Manningtree Squadron last week. Mr Jones is an ex-Royal Marine and also the Band Master at the School. Mr Jones gave our own band members a few tips playing instruments and techniques on presentation.
Our new drums and brass instruments were put to the test during the practice session and Mr Jones gave a great confidence boost to the lead drummers shown above. We are very grateful for his time and expertise it was an inspiration to us all.
The Squadron Band will be practicing throughout the Winter and Spring with the aim of organising some public appearance in 2011, watch the website for further details.
