On the 1st of October 2010 we had our grand opening of the Jedforest
Drum Academy where we use our 3 electronic kits to teach drum kit
skills. We currently have 16 members age ranging from 7 to 50 and this
is set to expand now we have the funding for the drum corps.
There are a lot of positive and exciting segments to the
Jedforest Instrumental Band where we create a friendly safe
environment where people of all ages and abilities can learn.
In order to keep pace with the ever expanding brass section of the
band and to satisfy demand we wish to establish the first ever Jedforest
This project is the first of its kind in the Borders
(outwith military/police and pipe bands).
The new project is being made possible with the support of Make a Splash, who we cannot hank enough for their support.
