Band Connect

Nottingham Music Hub are excited to launch Band Connect, a new after school provision for children who want to learn the basics of keyboard, drums, guitar, and bass. If your child loves music and has always wanted to learn to play a band instrument, this is the perfect opportunity for them!

Who It's For:

Tailored to Year Groups 4-7 (ages 8-12), participants do not need to have any prior experience or learning on these instruments.

Where & When:

Every Friday during term time from 4PM to 5PM (starting Friday, 10th June) at the Old Bus Depot, Fisher Gate Point, Nottingham (NG1 1GD)

What Sessions Include:

All participants need is love for music and a willingness to learn. Through dynamic weekly sessions, we aim to:

  • Build instrumental skills and technique on keyboard, drums, guitar, bass
  • Form an understanding of how these instruments are connected and used in songs from different genres
  • Develop an understanding of song writing through whole group work and creative exploration
  • Develop singing skills and confidence as a group
  • Develop performance skills and confidence
