We are “The Band Experience”, made up of professional musicians and qualified music teachers and tutors; we provide unique and exciting holiday workshops for wannabe rockstars, popstars and instrumentalists!

Our aim is to provide young musicians with an opportunity to meet and work with like-minded people who love making music! Whether you are an experienced player looking for others to jam with, are a brass or woodwind player looking to play a different style of music, or are a musician who has just mastered the basics, our 5 day workshops will leave you confident with all the necessary skills and experience to start your journey as a gigging musician in a band! And guess what?! Your very first gig with your newly-formed band will be at the end of the week in a fantastic live music venue, where you can invite all your family and friends to come along!

“The Band Experience” is for musicians between the ages of 11 to 16 and currently run at Shure 5 Studios in Oldham. We will match you with other musicians of a similar ability to form a working band of between 4 and 8 people; you will then prepare songs for a gig at the end of the week! Along the way, you will meet other young musicians and learn how to operate as a band, that will hopefully continue after the course has finished! Topics we will cover include:

  • How to set up the equipment you need correctly
  • How to rehearse as a band effectively
  • What roles each member of the band has
  • How to compose/ write songs as a band
  • How to prepare for a gig
  • A gig experience!
