Rock & Pop Music WorkshopsThe Foxlowe Arts Centre – Children’s Rock & Pop Workshops
 The workshops provide a great opportunity for young musicians to meet up, arrange, rehearse and perform rock and pop cover songs. They are designed to be fun but young musicians will pick up skills in playing in time, listening hard, working with others and general stagecraft. We generally have 2 groups running in the workshop, one for rock, the other for pop to keep everyone happy.

The workshops started in the Summer holidays 2012, when shortly after 2 young bands performed at the 2012 Totally Locally Birthday Bash. They were brilliant! We are hoping to put on a similar performace this year and possibly at other events such as Leek Arts Festival.
The workshops are led by Paul Hill and Steve Giddings. Both teach guitar privately and both have loads of experience of running bands.
Musicians will need their own instruments but amplifiers, leads and microphones are provided. We are also working on a ‘house’ drum kit.
The recomended ages are between 11 and 15. We are very keen to hear from any bass players, drummers or singers at the moment!
The workshops generally take place on the last Sunday in the month, 1.30pm to 3.30pm but please double-check the calendar.
The cost per workshop is £10.00 (payable on the day).
