Sessions are held at The Civic Hall, Totnes

We are based in the Civic Hall, Totnes, where we have ample space to rehearse, break away into smaller groups, run workshops and make a big sound. We have a full PA and various instruments, a sound engineer, music leaders and young music mentors who all work together to provide a great resource for young musicians.

Sessions run throughout the school year and are booked in half-term blocks. We require half-termly commitment which ends with a gig at our local music venue, the Barrel House, which is a stones throw from the Civic Hall.

Half-term structure:

We begin our half term by welcoming new members to the group, introducing new songs, styles, themes and tools. And individuals are encouraged to bring their songs and ideas and to start working together in groups of two or more.

Through the six or so sessions, songs develop within the group and each musician develops new skills through playing with others, practicing, finding support within the group and from the leaders and performing to the group.

We have occasional OPEN MIC/PUBLIC GIGS at The Barrell House. Check the website for details.
