Brass, wind and percussion players – come and join Lewisham’s vibrant youth music community!

If you play a brass, woodwind or orchestral percussion instrument at Grade 3+ (or equivalent) and would like to play in a large band with other young musicians from across Lewisham then come and join Lewisham Youth Concert Band.

You’ll gain great experience playing in harmony within a large group, meeting new friends, and challenging yourself playing everything from film scores to classical music to anime theme songs…and everything in between. Lewisham Youth Concert Band is a great experience for a young musician wanting to take their playing to the next level, all under the expert guidance of maestro, Layla Allen.




Lewisham Youth Concert Band regularly performs throughout London in prestigious venues such as Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall and Blackheath Halls, as well as getting involved with fantastic projects with organisations such as London Symphony Orchestra. There are also opportunities to see live concerts, to take part in trips to other parts of the country and to participate in overseas tours.
