Singing is joyous and fun. It's also very good for your health, but it does require some training and understanding of what's going in your body to make that glorious sound! Rob Castell has been working professionally as a singer, musician and teacher for almost 20 years, having sung with his own award winning vocal group Barbershopera, as a lead in We Will Rock You and even in the official band for the Royal Wedding in 2011! If you want to get some tips on how to belt those top notes, control your breath and keep singing all night long, this session will be perfect.

Acoustic Guitar - Absolute Beginners

Led by Richard Lee.

Always wanted to learn guitar but never got around to it? Want to trade your air guitar skills for real guitar skills? It is never too late to learn. Learn guitar right from the very beginning. This is a foundation course for those with little to no experience of playing guitar. You will learn how to hold a guitar and to make the right noises out of it. The aim of these lessons is to get you playing your first song within 4 weeks of lessons, as no-one takes up guitar to strum random chords, it’s all about the songs.

If you are returning to guitar having not played for some time and can barely remember chords this is a great way of getting back into the swing of things.
