What we'll do
Young people are invited to come and play well known music and create their own. They will work with professional musicians who are also trained tutors. Beginners will learn basic instrument skills on band instruments (drumkit, keyboards, microphones, guitars, ukuleles, etc.) and those who are intermediate/advanced will have the option to develop more advanced instrumental / vocal skills. Everyone will have access to both outdoor and indoor breakout spaces should they need it. There will also be alternative activities offered to the young people when they need a break, a change of pace or as an intervention should they feel overwhelmed at any point. These will take the form of arts, crafts, reading and den building (weather dependent). The centre is fully accessible and staff have a trauma-informed, nurture based approach in order to ensure that all children remain safe and included. All young people will also learn core-skills such as listening, respect and turn taking along with gaining self esteem and confidence through their music making and forming new, positive relationships.

Cancellation Policy
No refunds are given except in the case of a cancellation by the Mentor.

My experience consists of a leisure activity, on a specific date(s), and therefore the 14-day ‘cooling off period’ under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 does not apply.
