Perhaps you’ve thought about playing in a band but don’t know where to start. Here’s your chance! Readipop’s studios are just around the corner, and the Bell Tower Community Association are working with them to get discounted rehearsal space and eventually put on some gigs in our area. Free coaching will also be provided to help you get started.
Or perhaps you have your own suggestion for a community music project that we could help you get started with?
A few of us got together and had a go, and managed to get a band together for the 2016 street party – now it’s your turn! We already have a grant for £500 from Reading Neighbourhood Network towards the project, and if we can get enough local interest in a community music project we could apply for much more from the Big Lottery, for example. All we need is you and your enthusiasm! Whatever you’re interested in doing – forming a community choir, playing in a band, family drumming workshops, music quizzes, or any other suggestions you have…we want to hear from you.
We’re always looking for musicians of all ages and levels – it doesn’t matter if you’ve never played in a band before, and we’d be delighted if you’re an experienced or professional musician and are willing to share your experience with us.
So what are you waiting for? Get in touch and let’s play! Just fill in the form below and we’ll let you know what’s happening!
