Join the Band 

Buderim Concert Band welcomes musicians of all ages who are able to play concert band instruments.  Usually members have their own instruments, however, the band does have some larger instruments for use by members and may be able to assist prospective members with sourcing instruments.

We currently have two bands. The Buderim Concert Band for more experienced musicians and The Buderim Development Band for people who  have limited experience on their chosen instrument. For those who would like to learn an instrument click the Beginners Band Program menu item to the left.

Playing members of the Concert Band attend rehearsals on Monday nights at Mountain Creek State High School , from 7:00 to 9:00pm. We generally perform about once monthly. The rehearsal venue is wheel chair friendly.

Members are expected to attend 75% of rehearsals and performances. If playing members are unable to attend rehearsal, they are requested to send their apologies to the Musical Director, preferably via email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

To apply for membership of the Buderim Concert Band, come and play with us for up to four weeks. If you decide you would like to join, then we willl ask you to fill in a membership form and submit it with the membership fee. Pro rata fees are available upon request. Any enquiries about membership can be sent to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Sometimes new musicians  feel they are not up to the standard and get discouraged. We all had to start somewhere and they are encouraged to play what they can and work on the rest. By taking this supportive approach young/inexperienced musicians are able to find a life long love of music and end up some of our most valued and loyal members. Some of these members have been with us for over a decade.

Subcriptions fall due in January each year. Adult: $150.00 per full year; Student/Concession: $100.00 per full year; Associate: by donation; Family membership: $100.00 per person per full year. Pro rata fees are available for those joining mid year and there is no other weekly fee. Fees can be paid annually, half-yearly or by the quarter. Casual players: $5.00 pw.

Playing members also agree to buy a BCB shirt on joining the band (approx $45.00). See more details about uniforms here.

       Development Band 5:45 – 6:45pm
