The youth band project will be look to recruit up to 30 primary 5 and 6 pupils from the Glenrothes area and the band hopes to teach the pupils to read music and play a brass instrument with the aim of playing in public by 2011.

Funding

Funding from 'Awards for All Scotland' is now in place and a new set of instruments will be delivered soon.

Feeder band

The initiative renews the Tullis Youth band which had over the years become a feeder band into the senior band.

Steve Craig told 4BR: "The Tullis Russell Youth Band are very grateful to Awards for All Scotland, the Tullis Russell Group and the Tullis Russell Mills Band for the financial support which has allowed this project to come to fruition and it is hoped that the Glenrothes public, and further afield, will get the opportunity to hear this new youth band in the very near future.

Adult learners

Hard on the heels of the launch of a new youth band Tullis hope to also launch an adult learning band too.

Steven added: "We also want to try and get older people involved in banding and hopefully to take up instruments that younger children find difficult, such as the tuba. This is a way to involve adults and hopefully provide for the future."
