Become A Band

Ideal for secondary school pupils, but suited to other Key Stages

Typical format: Out of hours clubs – lunchtimes and afterschool

These sessions are the perfect way to engage young people’s passions and creativity. We’ve found that there are few things more rewarding for young people than performing their favourite songs with friends and expressing themselves in new ways.

Children and young people get to play and sing together as an ensemble, understand how music is created and arranged, while also learning different kinds of music as well as favourite songs that they’ve always wanted to play. Our music leaders have and continue to be in lots of different bands, they have lots to share about how to play together as a group.

Songwriting and Composition

We can take an organic approach to discovering what kind of music the group wants to play, or we can focus on specific genres if you already know their preferences, for example:

  • Rock & Indie – using guitars, drums, keyboards and brass instruments
  • Hip Hop – using electronic instruments, beatboxing, drums and guitars
  • Samba – using Brazilian percussion (drums, shakers and rattles) and brass
  • Folk – using acoustic guitars, violins, percussion to play tunes suitable for a ceilidh
  • Jazz – using guitars, brass, percussion and piano
  • Choir – using just voices to create complex vocal melodies

Whichever you chose, performing in a band is a great way to channel passion and energy, develop a strong team spirit, learn to work as a group and communicate creative ideas.
