Billy is the finest, wisest and most whiskery conductor that ever lived. He takes his band to play in all kinds of weird and wonderful locations. Wherever the gig, the band are always faced with some mystery to be solved, or obstacle to overcome. By pulling together and using team-work, they always find a solution to the problem. Each adventure ends with a happy and rousing musical finale.
Through story books, family concerts and school workshops, Billy’s Band will entertain and inspire children to pick up a musical instrument and have a go.
Each book comes with a musical activities CD with special guests – including Simon Callow as Billy, Nicola Benedetti and Phil Cobb.
