Band Connect- show your interest by filling in the questionnaire
Band Connect is an exciting new ensemble which will teach students from year groups 4, 5, 6, how to play the basics on the keyboard/piano, guitar/bass and drums. No experience is necessary, just a passion to learn! Students will also learn how those instruments connect and work together in a band setting, and start to develop song writing skills on both instruments and using music tech.
A Nottingham Music School worker is hoping to apply for funding to provide a brand new opportunity for Nottingham City children and young people in school years 4-6 who are interested in being part of a band! She would love as many pupils as possible to complete the form available using the link below in order to gather further information about what they want and need, to support the funding application.
This questionnaire is to find out if you would like to be part of an exciting new music project where you will get to learn band instruments, song writing, and how to use music technology. The information you provide will be anonymised but it may be used for possible funding bids.
