"Since starting at the music academy, my daughter has practiced without me pushing her, grown in confidence, and redeveloped her love for music"

Tongwynlais Temperance Band boasts some of Wales’ finest musicians who are enthused to pass on their skills, passion and knowledge to the next generation. For five years in succession, the band has ranked as one of the UK’s top-20 brass bands, each year successfully qualifying for the National Finals at the Royal Albert Hall. In 2014, the band reached the final of the acclaimed Band Cymru competition on S4C and, for the last nine years, gained a podium-place finish at the Welsh Open Entertainment Contest, winning the 2017 contest and making them current Welsh Open Champions.
