Social and Community Clubs 


SNBSWE is a symphonic wind ensemble rehearses every Thursday evening during school terms. The band consists of adult amateur and professional musicians who play a wide repertoire of music. If you play an instrument and are looking for a great musical experience with good company, come and see if you like what we do. The Ensemble serves the local Northern Beaches community through regular concerts. It provides opportunities for experienced brass, percussion and woodwind musicians to play high grade symphonic repertoire. The Ensemble allows people to continue playing their instruments after leaving school, therefore giving the experience of music for life. Contact: Denise Morgan 9999 0655, 


You join Monatones as Lorraine Rien did back in 1995.  Monatones, a local community concert band, operating since 1993, gives adult musicians, both professional and amateur, the opportunity to try different instruments.  New players are always welcome. The ability range is quite wide and there is a place for everyone. Lorraine joined Monatones mid 1995. She could only at that stage play piano.  However, the criteria then was that you had to play something new so she was put on the Cymbals in Percussion.   

Lorraine says “At first performance on opening the concert with a cymbal crash, I felt so exposed that I figured playing in a section would be less traumatic, so on trying different instruments, found I could get a sound from a trumpet.  I thought if young kids could play a trumpet,  I could too.”

She finally got her trumpet and then the trumpet section expanded but the euphonium player left.  So Lorraine switched to that thinking that as the fingering was the same as a trumpet, it wouldn’t be too hard to learn.  Then along came two more euphonium players!

As the trombone section was reduced to one player, Lorraine thought the mouthpieces seemed to be similar so she would have a go at trombone.  

In 2002, 7 years after first joining Monatones Lorraine found her true love.  French Horns.  While looking after some French Horns for her children’s local school band, she just had to figure out how to play one. 10 years later, Lorraine still loves the French Horn, owns her own instrument and isn’t planning any more changes.  She still gets nervous when Monatones is performing but the advantage of French Horn is that she’s not sitting in the front row.

If you play a brass, woodwind or percussion instrument, come and join Lorraine at Monatones on Wednesday nights, 7.30 pm, Pittwater Music Room at Pittwater High School, Mona Street, Mona Vale.  Our new term starts on Wednesday 2nd May and we would love to see new members there. Details 9999 0655 or 0414 560 263.
