Making Music Together
“Blow-a-5er” is a set of informal ensembles, designed to give community members an avenue to play their brass and woodwind instruments. Meeting once a week for an hour, each group will be led by a local specialist instrumentalist and teacher. No need to commit to each week, turn up as often as you like, the more you come, the better you get.

Don’t have an instrument? Come and speak to Nick at windSonus, he will do his best to find you one to hire/use. windSonus also has a hire program, not all instruments are available, but our stock is growing.
Blow-a-5er, is an economical way for you to enjoy making music with like-minded people without the cost and hassle involved with many musical groups. Rehearsal space is provided, so is suitable music. For a very low cost of $5 a rehearsal that you attend. If you don’t attend, then you don’t need to pay.
Groups will work on a wide variety of music within their rehearsals, based on the groups needs and desires. If you have something you’d like to play then I encourage you to discuss that with your group leader.
