I was also going to suggest a "New Horizons" band. At the time that I returned to the clarinet after a 47 year absence a NH band started locally and I joined as a founder member. I still play with them 12 years later. As the band improved over the years we found that the policy of accepting members with rudimentary skills was holding back the development of the band, so we formed a second "beginners" band. Novice players develop their skills there and then move on the the main band. It also provides a means for experienced players to develop their skills on different instruments.

We also have a few small instrumental groups that have grown out of the band while still remaining part of it. We have a clarinet quartet, a brass group and a jazz group. We also work with the music programs of local schools, with workshops and joint performances. I can think of no better way of growing your instrumental and ensemble skills among a group of like-minded people.
