Bring out your inner rock-star and join us on Saturdays for our band sessions. We welcome anyone from the age of 11 and upwards for a chance to show off your skills and play alongside other musicians. Develop your technique, meet new people and gain real band and musicianship skills.


” Playing with others really helps build confidence and improves timing but most of all is very enjoyable experience when it starts to come together. All the Music Teachers and students I have met and worked with during band workshop have been very dedicated, always friendly and make you feel accepted. So if you a serious about learning to play with others in a band then this is a great place to learn.”  Bryan Prestbury
