Join the Band – Come & Play

How good do I need to be to join the band?

Generally speaking we are an intermediate level adult concert band.  If you have had experience playing with a community, high school or university/college band, then you probably will be able to play with our band.  

What if it has been a long time since I played?

  • That doesn't matter. If you played at a pretty good level once, then you can do it again. It will just take some time to practice. There are first, second, and third parts for most scores. The fingers will remember and the chops will come back. 

Can I try the band out to see if I fit?

Yes. Come to one or two of our regular practices. We meet almost every Monday from September to June. The is only real way to find out is to come out and play with us a few times.  

And if you do not think you will fit?  No problem.  Tak conducts three different bands of three different levels on the North Shore.  We can find you a band that you will fit.  Promise.

What instruments are we looking for?

We are a concert band – brass, woodwinds, and percussion.

How much does it cost?

  • There is a $200.00 annual membership fee for those that are able. This covers from September to June and can be made in two installments
  • For students and for those who are unable, we can make special arrangements

When and where do we practice?
