I'm Alice and really enjoy the challenge of being part of this band and playing with the others.
It is not something I had ever really expected to get involved withas Music didn't feature in my life when growing up, I could never remember the words to songs, nor did I get the popular radio one music either.
I kind of got into music through Guide campfires and various silly songs and then folkey things, and intrigued by different characters you could make. Then whilst working away on site in 2012, evenings were dull and Cricklade where I was staying had an all comers Training Band, mainly youngsters supported by members of the main band and a few parents which played in the Town a few times over Christmas.
I took a leap in the dark, they were encouraging, sorted me out with everything I needed and gave me tips each week and how to read sheet music, till I could just play a scale then joined in the group.
I since have moved to Exeter joining the only Railway Band. I'm still learning and look forward to discovering new pieces and polishing old favourites in rehearsals and enjoy seeing people so absorbed whilst listening to the music we play.
