We’re always looking for new players, so if you would like to join us then just send us a message! Our bands are mostly for wind players, but there are places for guitarists, bassists, percussionists and uke players as well.

With one Membership Fee players can come to almost all of our bands. Many DVYM players who started as total beginners have gone on to pass their Grade 8 exams and some have even gone on to study it at university!

No auditions are necessary! Hurrah! Mostly we look at any current grade exams you might have passed. If you’ve not done any exams then fear not- the conductors will often put a player in a band appropriate to their experience and ability (and they can always have a word with your music teacher if you’re not sure).

And don’t worry if you don’t have an instrument! DVYM has a load of Instruments for Hire and will do its best to accommodate a player’s needs.

Thanks for looking at our website, it would be great to see you soon!
