SIPS Music & Arts Community Bands

SIPS Music and Arts are pleased to offer a community band initiative in partnership with Sandwell libraries.


Community bands are free of charge, open to all musicians in the community and designed as an ideal first experience for musicians of all levels and experiences to play with other instrumentalists.

Who can attend?

– Pupils at school learning to plan an instrument in WCIT.

– Pupils receiving instrumental/vocal lessons.

– Parents, carers and teachers who previously played an instrument, maybe still own an instrument and have an interest in playing again.


All are welcome!

Community bands rehearse every Wednesday during term time 17:00-18:00 in a library near you.


For further details please talk to your child’s instrumental teacher, email us at , phone us on 0121 569 3000 or complete the contact form at the bottom of the page.
