Every Saturday during term time from 2 – 5.30pm, you will get the chance to work with industry professionals to learn Guitar, Bass, Drums and Vocals in a fun and inspiring way, whilst learning about performance, composition and songwriting. You will also get the chance to form a band or join the vocal collective. Alternatively, come along to our professional production studios on a Thursday evening and learn how to produce your own beats and tracks.
What can I learn?
During the first hour you can specialize in any of the following:
Students of the Music Space Academy will get to learn guitar by exploring songs that they know and want to learn. Learning about chords and song structure, whilst developing solo and improvisation techniques you will also work with other learners in the group to develop your own song ideas.
The cornerstone of any good band is a solid rhythm section. At Music Space Academy you will have the opportunity to learn kit drumming, developing skills in rhythm, song structure, fills and timing. You will develop the skills necessary to be able to perform in bands both during the academy and beyond.
The other mainstay of the rhythm section, Bass Guitar is an essential part of any band. You will learn techniques that will enable you to play with other musicians including rhythm/ timing, scales, song structure whilst studying classic tracks and developing new material.
Working with the singing and songwriting tutor, you will develop the techniques required to develop and maintain your vocals. Looking at popular music you will also explore lyric writing, song structure and performance techniques.
After the first hour you will then get the chance to form bands and spend the next hour working with other like-minded musicians, or join the vocal collective learning tracks and writing new music.
Taking the skills developed in your instrument classes, you will come together to form small bands where you will learn well known tracks and develop your own music. The course will finish with a performance of these songs at one of CMs live music events.
Vocal Collective/ Choir
Carrying on from the singing/ songwriting lesson the young people will be able to develop skills required for a high quality ensemble performance at one of CMs live music events. Young people will get the opportunity to put their own spin modern tracks as well as continuing to develop their own song ideas.
