Pick Up and Play: Band Sessions is an exciting new programme being launched by Music Generation Louth in January 2017. The course has been developed with a focus on live performance, song writing and music production and is aimed at students of mixed abilities who would enjoy playing pop and rock music as part of a group. Over the course of the term, participants will have the opportunity to sing and play guitars, bass, drums and keyboards.
The programme will run for 16 weeks and will be split into two blocks, with the first block focused on learning to play a selection of current songs. The second block will focus on writing and producing original tracks which will be recorded in the last two sessions, giving the participants an insight into the music production process. The culmination of the course will be an exciting live gig of the songs learned and composed over the term.
Each participant will also be given access to online video tutorials to help them progress between sessions. The sessions will run weekly at our regional centres in Dundalk, Ardee and Drogheda. Sessions will run for 1 hour at a cost of €120 for the term. Three sessions will be available at each centre to facilitate different ages and ability: 10-12 years and 13-18 years.
