WE ARE A BRASS BAND: this means the following instruments are played
- Cornet (Bb and Eb) and Flugel Horn
- Tenor Horn
- Baritone and Euphonium
- Trombone and Bass Trombone
- Tuba (Bb and Eb)
- Percussion (Tuned and Untuned)
HEAVEN BRASS is our training band, and a great introduction point if you haven't played before.
Beginners to a brass instrument, players returning or adults looking for a new hobby - this is a great place to start. Families are welcome!
If you play a different instrument to those listed above, WE CAN TEACH YOU!. Concert bands contain other instruments, but we can likely transfer your playing talent to a brass band instrument (music reading experience is highly valued, so come and chat to us if you are keen!).
Heaven Brass rehearses Tuesday evenings 6-7pm.
Enquiries can be made direct to the Heaven Brass Musical Director,.

We offer a few weeks come-n-try, so you can have a go and decide if you would like to join us as a member. With fantastic support from the Marion Council, we offer very reasonable membership, which includes loan of an instrument if needed (upon completion of an instrument hire form).
Heaven Brass membership is by school term ($50 including instrument loan, tutoring in basic music reading and brass instrument playing,
Marion City Band Inc membership is reviewed annually and amount set by committee. It generally includes access to a playing instrument (with the Musical Director assessing player ability, band needs and available instruments).
Membership in Marion bands does require a commitment to attend regular rehearsals and perform at council and community functions, private booked functions, state and national competitions representing Marion City Band.
ALL your questions can be answered by coming along to meet us, email or by a phone call.... so please be in touch if you would like to visit us and see if you have found your new hobby!!
