Learning how to play a musical instrument is great fun; it’s challenging,satisfying and enjoyable, not to mention low in calories and won’t rot your teeth. Making music really starts to make sense when you experience playing with other people. To that end, our intrepid bass & guitar teacher, Rodrigo, and indefatigable drum teacher, Joe, have been running band workshops at Ebony & Ivory music school. There is a group for kids and another for adults and the budding musicians are learning to play a wide variety of songs in a group setting.
So far the musos have learned songs such as soul classics I Got You, Lady Marmalade and Blame It On The Boogie and rock numbers like Hard To Handle, Paranoid and Bombtrack.
Here are a couple of videos of the kids grooving nicely. If you’re interested in participating, please get in touch via the In The Pocket workshops website here – www.inthepocketbandworkshops.co.uk.
