Horns and melody at The Vale!

Join us to kickstart a brand-new weekly offering of Brass and Woodwind  here at The Vale in Mossley. Meet new music pals and further your skills, all with a massive smile on your face as part of the Global Grooves Carnival community!

Brass / woodwind players joining the project should have some experience. Bring your instrument along!

Members aged 12-16 to be accompanied by an adult.

Tutors: the GG team will take you through exciting Carnival grooves and moves!

Join us on the second Sunday of every month 10.30am-12.30pm

What’s included?

Weekly horns and melody sessions to perk up your week playing and moving alongside some of the Carnival communities most enthusiastic and talented folks. Led by the GG artist team, Jack Tinker and guest artists will take you through exciting melodies and rhythms as you further your technique in brass playing, and learn to play arrangements as part of a workshop-band. Weekly classes will run on Wednesdays for  brass players. There will also be an extra monthly special class where we will combine all three art forms (alongside the dancers and percussionists)!

This weekly class is available to buy as a weekly ‘drop-in’ class, though where possible we are encouraging members to subscribe to a longer term of classes to create something really special together over time.

What’s the commitment?

The more you put in, the more you will get out! We know life is busy and understand it can be difficult to commit to weekly sessions and especially practicing, but we would encourage participants to attend as many sessions as possible to get the most benefit. Come along to the monthly combined sessions to enjoy blending the percussion and melody classes with the dancers to rehearse together for that big Global Grooves energy hit!


You are welcome to bring along your own drinks and snacks to the sessions (let us know if you have any severe allergies that we should be aware of). You are welcome to bring your own beers along to the sessions if you wish, or to support the venue (thanks in advance!) we can open the bar for a bottles bar only (alcoholic and soft drinks available).

Any other questions?

For more information about bloco please contact and someone from the team will get back to you as soon as possible.
