Summer School for 11 to 16 yrs

July 27, 2022 2:54 pm Published by

We are running an exciting ‘Band summer school’ for anyone aged 11 to 16 years old who is learning to play Guitar, Bass, Keys, Vocals, Ukulele or Drums. You do not have to be a Maunders student to take part.

Join our summer school and be guided by professional musicians/teachers Neil Maunder and Ketaki Acharee. 

As well as extensive teaching experience Both Neil and Ketaki have experience running band workshops, playing live professionally and promoting live shows. They also both play in their own bands. Neil also promotes live Rock/grunge shows around Manchester’s northern quarter and beyond.

What will be covered in the Summer School?

We will cover songwriting, band ensemble, instrument skills, improvisation and performance and will culminate in a live performance at the school that parents will be able to see at the end of the course.

Whatever instrument you play, playing with other musicians/learners is one of the best ways to improve and build skills with a real band experience. We will help with song choices, how to building a set list and arrange a logical running order for your show. We will also look at how to work together as a band introducing rhythm and lead ideas as well as harmony. Students attending will have the chance to play more than one instrument if they prefer, so they can explore different aspects of being in a band.

We will also encourage any musicians attending who play an instrument to try vocal harmonies within their band if they wish to do so.

We will be accommodating all levels but it is favourable to have some basic skills such as playing basic chords, to gain the most out of the experience.
