Learning how to be in a band with The Band Project

September heralds the arrival of a new musical venture for local children and teenagers with the launch of The Band Project Chiswick. 


Many children and teenagers would love to play an instrument or be part of a band but may be too shy or don’t have an outlet to this.  Others may already play instruments but would really love to experience more than their standard music lessons.

The Band Project Chiswick offers young aspiring musicians the unique opportunity to learn and progress with their chosen instrument in a fun and supportive environment while experiencing what being in a band is all about.

Courses take place in rehearsal studios guided by expert tutors and also include a guest workshop with top UK session musicians who regularly work with international stars like Westlife, Leona Lewis, Sir Tom Jones and Professor Green. All of this gives the students the chance to experience the fun, dedication and passion that goes into sustaining a career in music.  The older children also get to record a CD in a recording studio which is a fantastic opportunity and an experience they are sure to love and remember.  

Building self-confidence
Learning as part of a team is incredibly motivating, helps to build self-confidence as well as being enjoyable.  Whether the children are total beginners or have experience with their chosen instrument, these inclusive courses ensure that everyone plays an equally important role.  

With a background in music herself, centre manager Melanie said: “I hope the centre will inspire the students who sign up and help them develop their musical careers. There is real potential for some of the children to go on to become successful musicians or songwriters. It’s so important for children to have goals and I think recording a CD and putting on the end of course gig will be extremely motivating. It’s an incredibly rewarding process and many will find they gain a real confidence boost both musically and personally.”  

Creator and founder, Chris Mountford explains: “we are driven by our passion for music and live performance and we want families to be just as enthused about The Band Project.  By engaging children with music they love in a supportive and encouraging atmosphere, we’ve seen the massive impact the courses have with so many benefits for all the children involved."

The Band Project opens its doors on the 27th September 2014, 11am at Arch Studios, Prebend Gardens, Stamford Brook, London, W6 0XT.

The Band Project Chiswick is offering a FREE trial for the first session, however places are strictly limited.  To ensure you don’t miss out register your place by visiting www.thebandproject.co.uk or contact Melanie on 07828 156 332.
