Thank you for taking the time to read through our Music-Making and Learning for Adults brochure. We’re sure you’ll find something in here which will ignite your passion for music. For those of you who have seen our brochure in previous years, you will notice that we have organised things a little bit differently this year. Classes are colour coded in relation to the ability level required to participate. This year there are yet more activities on offer, including those taking place at our exciting new venue which is right in the heart of Gateshead - Gateshead Old Town Hall. We are delighted to have this opportunity to develop and expand our music learning in this beautiful, historic building. We know that you will have many reasons for wanting to learn or make music and we hope to help you achieve your full potential in a relaxed and friendly environment, with experienced tutors, talented musicians and great music. Whatever your reason and regardless of your experience, we make sure that music-making is, first and foremost, fun.

You are an absolute beginner, you are returning to music after a while or you believe that you can’t sing or play a note. These groups are designed to conquer your fears as well as develop basic skills and technique so that you can quickly enjoy taking your music-making to the next level. There are no auditions and no prior skills or experience needed.

You have a basic understanding of the instrument (or voice) and are keen to improve your technique and repertoire in a supportive group. These classes work as a direct progression from our Absolute Beginner classes and are also for people who can already play a little.

Adult13 v2.indd 3

You’ve been making music for a while or you are confident in your own ability but have not sung in a choir or played in an ensemble before. Maybe you’d like to try a new genre or something a little more challenging. This is a place for you to develop and improve your skills with others who enjoy the same music as you. No auditions, some experience of singing and loads of enthusiasm required.

Ability Level Colour Key You’re a confident musician looking to perfect your skills and use your knowledge and experience to their full potential. Sessions are likely to be genrespecific with performance as a key element of the group’s aims. You may be required to audition. An open mind, commitment and a willingness to enjoy is essential.
