Welcome to F.A.M.E.

Your free F.A.M.E music sessions are here...

F.A.M.E at last with the BBC
Join us for your free music lesson
Saturday 17th March 2018

Thanks to the support of Gloucestershire Music, BBC Radio Gloucestershire and Music for All we are giving 100 people the chance to get creative and get playing at music centres in Gloucester and Stroud. If you are aged 7+ (including adults) you can be one of a hundred people who are being given their first introduction to playing a musical instrument. Your free lesson will take place at Five Valleys Music Centre (Archway School, Stroud) and Brookfield Music Centre (Sir Thomas Rich’s School, Gloucester) from 09:30 - 12:30 on Saturday 17th March 2018.

Already have an instrument or learning at school?

Any child who has just started playing an instrument now has the perfect opportunity to hone their skills with GM’s expert tutors.

Gloucestershire Music is able to offer additional support through their F.A.M.E. Academies in Gloucester and Stroud – and they are FREE.

Steven Legge (Extended Learning & Provision Manager) said:  "Playing in a group or small ensemble is an essential part of any young musicians life.  The earlier we can get young musicians along to their local music centre the more they will progress, learn and succeed in music."

F.A.M.E. sessions last for 45 - 60 minutes and are designed to improve ensemble skills through rhythm games, singing and practical music making.

F.A.M.E. compliments lessons that your child may be receiving at school or at home and provides a gentle introduction to your local music centre.

If you have just started playing an instrument, then join us and become a F.A.M.E. musician.
