Nuneaton based Air Cadets are on the lookout for a new instructor to lead the training of their bands percussion section. Following the retirement of their previous instructor David Stacy who has recently moved to Ireland the Squadrons band is searching for a suitably qualified person to take on the training of the bands drummers.
Flight Lieutenant Ian Crewe Officer Commanding 121 ( Nuneaton ) Squadron said, “We need someone, preferably with previous military band experience to join us as a Civilian Instructor to help train our young musicians. I would encourage any former military bandsmen within our local ex-service community who would be interested in taking up the post to come forward and help us out”.
He added “At the moment our older cadets are teaching the younger members of the band by handing down the training given to them by David Stacy. They are doing the best they can but we do need someone with the necessary experience to help to move the percussion section onto new and better things”.
The Band of 121 ( Nuneaton ) Squadron of the Air Training Corps was formed in the year 2000 and has become a familiar site at many civic and charitable events within the area most notably the Remembrance Day parades in Nuneaton & Bedworth. The band has also achieved some notable success in competitions, both locally and at regional level.
If you've got any previous military band experience and you're willing to come down and help, please get in touch.
