Virtual Band

Live online rehearsal and workshop

Last Tuesday in every month

Date-Tuesday30th June Time 7pm 

If you would like to take part please email me or fill in the form below and I will be in contact with the next step. The cost is £10 for the workshop/rehearsal and £15 for the video project. (Newbury sax school members get free Workshop/rehearsal and video project  £15)

The session will be about 1 1/2 hours

The world has changed briefly and everybody is self isolating. Nothing can be more frustrating than not being able to play music with your band and groups.  We have created a new idea where music students can still be part of a regular band and integrate online. 

How it works

We are doing an hour (ish) rehearsal/workshop with demo’s and advise on performance and improvisation. Participants will get a worksheet with licks and scales that will fit with this months track, Jimmy Smith’s blues called ‘Back to the Chicken Shack’.

Students will then have until the end of the month to record themselves with their phone or camera, playing to the track provided. Students wear earphones to hear the backing track, whilst recording themseleves. Forward your video and watch your contribution on a  keepsake performance with other musicians; see the demonstration.

What instruments can be involed?

We have music for all C, Bb, Eb instruments, piano, guitar, drums and bass. If you would like to take part and cannot see the music you require, please contact me via the form and I will be happy to assist you.
