Do you play an instrument?
Want to play in a band?
Age 10 to 16 years?
Bandjam is a Lamp House Music youth project for 10 to 16 year olds who have some experience of playing an instrument and feel keen and ready to be a part of a band.
Bandjam has proved hugely popular and a fantastic experience for all involved. It brings together like-minded young musicians and provides them with professional guidance and rehearsal facilities to support their development as a band.
Overseen by our professional music tutors, all of whom have experience themselves of being in a band, each group will initially select songs to cover, learn the music and rehearse together as a band. Cover versions are a good way of getting to know each other and understand how each band member works.
Bands will then be encouraged to write their own original songs and supported through the song-writing experience. Each band is different and therefore the outcomes can be unpredictable but are always hugely exciting and inspiring! Some of our Bandjam bands have gone on to perform at gigs and concerts in front of hundreds of people!
Bandjam: Fridays, Time TBC (this is expected to be late afternoon/early evening for Autumn Term 2021)
As with everything at Lamp House Music, the aim of Bandjam is to have a great time with music but also to encourage creativity, confidence, friendship and to support young people on their musical journey.
Each sessions lasts 1hour & 15 minutes. Attendance costs £20 per week, paid in a block in advance (approx 8 weeks). We ask that all participants make a commitment to coming every week to enable the whole band to progress together to it’s full potential.
Anyone interested is advised to submit their details. Note your interest here or contact us to request a ‘Bandjam Form’ as a paper or printable version. We will ask a bit about you, the instrument you play, your music tastes etc.
Due to the nature of the project, an even mix of band members is required. Using the details provided plus age and instrument, we will form bands whenever we have a session we can use. If the formation of a band works well we will continue to support them through Bandjam from one term to the next, adding in new members as and when required.
We would encourage you to add your name to our Waiting List and see where Bandjam takes you!
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, Bandjam is not currently running. But we hope to bring it back in August / September 2021.
