SATURDAY SESSIONS

BAND SESSIONS PLUS

8-18 Years BAND SESSIONS PLUS A highly specialised course, where bands are formed! Most members participate in Band Sessions and then stay for Band Sessions Plus.   The children are taught in intensive band workshops, focusing on electric guitars, drums, keyboards, vocals and songwriting. Members of BS+ experience the excitement of performing as part of a band each term and recording their own tracks onto CD. We encourage all our members to sing and develop skills on all of the band instruments, and we are always happy to incorporate other instruments and new ideas into our work with the bands! Children work through Stage 1 to Stage 2 and some prior instrumental knowledge is essential. The courses culminate on stage at one of our Upbeat gigs, including our very own Battle Of The Bands, Upbeat at The Troubadour and UPBEAT ROCKS at Imperial College. Each term consists of 10 sessions.

WHEN:

Saturdays 11.30 – 3.00 (Band Sessions Plus)

SONGWRITING AND SOUND PRODUCTION

Learn how to combine the elements of lyric writing, song structure, harmony and chords to create your own music. You will develop your recording skills with our sound engineer so that you can record your tracks and produce your own CDs. The sessions are planned around your child and are designed to provide a unique experience where their individual creativity and musicality is harnessed and developed. Either just attend the songwriting/ production sessions or stay on afterwards to develop your song into a real performance in our afternoon band workshops.

UPBEAT POPpets

Introduce your little ones (3 – 5yrs) to music in the Upbeat way, with songs, dance, games, drumming and above all lots of fun.

Early exposure to music builds new pathways in a young child’s brain and amongst many other benefits, helps them develop language and communication skills,  strengthen their memory and practise self expression.

Upbeat POPpets sessions are taught by experienced teachers who understand how to inspire the love of music in your child. They also get to perform with the Popkids in our end of term shows.  

WHEN:

Saturdays 10.00- 11.00
