Toolkit For Bands

The aim of this Toolkit is simple. We want to give ideas and examples of how to make an organisation function and expand. In our case, it is Marching Bands but elements of the Toolkit will work for every organisation that has volunteers and unpaid staff.

It can be amended and adapted to suit everyone and we would welcome any feedback regardless of source that would improve or update this product.

Flute Tuition Programme

We launched our Marching Bands programme in May 2014 to give pupils an interactive insight into the different types of marching bands and the instruments that they play. We also give pupils the chance to play some instruments and experience what it is like to play in a group/band.

Since the launch of our Marching bands programme we have delivered it to numerous different schools reaching approx. 3000 pupils with positive feedback from schools, teachers and pupils.

We have worked with pupils of all ages and can set a programme to suit their ability. Our marching bands programme is designed for Primary 6 and upwards but we can do simple music lessons with the instruments for younger pupils.

We have now designed a flute programme teaching pupils the basics of playing a flute and reading music as well as looking into Marching Bands and their music.

Maiden City Accord

After an approach from the Apprentice Boys of Derry the coordinator of the LBF Derek Moore chaired the meetings over five months that produced the Accord. These meetings involved individuals from all the Loyal Orders and the event safety stewards.

It is hoped that this straight forward document with clear ideas and a sense of good neighbourly manners and respect can help to ensure that commemorative parading can be the entertaining and safe spectacle that we all desire.

It is not a code of conduct or a specific set of rules, rather a guide to taking simple respectful steps on one side of a seemingly complex issue and looking for reciprocation in return.

Evaluation Report

The executive summary and main evaluation charts the development and progress of the Londonderry Bands Forum from the early days through to 2016 and is a snapshot of an organisation with values of equality, drive and ambition. Education and dialogue with everyone regardless of gender, religion or race are the cornerstones of our progress.
