Course Details

The course will help you to improve your playing techniques alongside helping you become more confident and skilled at rehearsing and performing as a band. This course is also intended to improve your confidence too as you’ll also have the opportunity to perform a range of material in front of other members of the class helping you prepare for your final “showcase performance”.
