Group Instrumental and Fun Music Sessions
These take place at Farr Hall on Wednesdays. The fee is £4 per session for group instrumental learning and £3 per session for Kodaly fun music sessions - all payable at the start of each term.
Group instrumental learning sessions provide an opportunity for community members to learn instruments in a more formal setting. We have five musicians who teach a range of instruments to provide teaching to groups. The group learning sessions (for ‘P1’ age group to adults) focus on group learning for piano/keyboard, guitar/ukulele, fiddle, drums in groups of up to three.
Kodaly fun music sessions are for the younger participants in the ‘under P1’ age group. They are a fun introduction to music for young children, and pave the way nicely for them to choose an instrument (including voice) as they grow up.
The sessions are 30 minutes in duration and delivered during the school academic year, during term-time, weekly on Wednesdays from 1530 to 1930, at Farr Hall.

In December 2016 we asked for feedback from participants on the group learning sessions. You can view the comments we received here. Most of the improvement suggestions we have managed to address, but, unfortunately, some we have no control over.
