How it Works

Participants are matched according to musical tastes and experience and create a band.

Each workshop is one hour and each facilitated rehearsal is one hour. These run back-to-back to create a two-hour session per week. In the fifth week there’s an extra rehearsal session before the performance.
There will also be a follow-up social session after the performance to include presentation of the certificates.

The Workshops

‘Playing as a Band’ – song selection, knowing your band, listening & locking in, creating cues and endings.

Week 2
