Band Workshops Give You The Chance To Play With Experienced Musicians And Other Learners

Band workshop sessions are great for anyone learning Guitar, Bass, Drums, Keyboards or Vocals. Playing with other musicians is often the best way to continue your learning and further progress.

We offer both adult and under 18 band sessions. Sessions are arranged to match people not only with people of similar musical tastes but also with appropriate ages. The workshops are 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.

We have 2 sessions running every Saturday. Anyone learning Guitar, Bass, Drums, Keys, Piano or Vocals is welcome to come and join. The sessions are inclusive to all levels of players.

All Sessions £20 per person. These are drop in sessions so No is pre booking is required. We do recommend dropping us a call or email to double check before arriving.
