We are delighted to announce a new program starting Autumn 2015. MUSIC PERFORMANCE WORKSHOPS have been specially designed for you to teach you the skills required to perform with a real band in a live setting. Singers, bass players, guitar players, drummers, and keyboard players, all come together to perform their favourite songs and songs they learned. The course affords our students the opportunity to put into practice all they have learned and apply this learning to a real life musical setting as opposed to being just 'bedroom players'. You will discover that playing in a band will bring your playing and your confidence to a whole new level. It brings together everything that you are learning in your regular lessons and serves as a huge motivator to get better on your instrument.


For further information of our workshops see our Live Band page.
