Battle of The School Bands 2022

We are pleased to announce that this year’s competition will take place on Saturday 14 May. Due to maintenance work in the theatre, we are taking the opportunity to make some changes and use the larger Dave Ferguson Hall. As this event has now become so popular, we have been wanting to increase the audience capacity as well as give it more of a ‘gig’ feel which will hopefully encourage more under 16s to come and support their school. More updates coming soon!

Good news!

Following the announcement from the States of Guernsey today, we are pleased to be able to open our studios fully from Monday 22 March! Saturday band sessions and T-Vox will resume after the Easter break.
Please continue to sign in when you enter the building and make use of the hand sanitising facilities. The advice is that masks are not mandatory but are advisable for those aged 12+ in communal areas. We look forward to seeing you all again very soon!

Stage 2 of exit from lockdown – Guidance for students

We are so pleased that the island will be entering stage 2 from Monday 8 March. Unfortunately we are classed as ‘extra-curricular’ so this means that for the time being, we can only teach students aged 18 and over in the studios (with the exception of vocal students who will remain online). Lessons for students under 18 will remain online for the time being. If you are 18 or over, your teacher will be in touch to ask whether you would like to resume face to face lessons next week. We hope to see you all very soon x

Welcome to a new term!

Where did the summer go? Even though we weren’t able to travel as we would normally, the summer has still flown by – already the leaves are turning golden and there’s definitely an autumnal nip in the air.

The first half of the Autumn term starts on Monday 7 September for all studio lessons (with lessons in schools starting during the week of 14th September) and runs up until and including Saturday 24 October.

Here’s to a great term of learning and making music!

We’re so excited to be able to host another workshop with the amazingly talented Kelly Fraser! As well as the workshop, she will also be offering 1-1 vocal lessons on the afternoon of Friday 11th and the morning of Saturday 12th March – spaces will be limited to get in touch if you’d like a spot!

Here’s a bit about Kelly’s work and experience:

Kelly is a highly experienced freelance industry vocal coach and Music Therapist. She has worked on X-Factor for over 5 years as part of the vocal coaching team and also for Britain’s Got Talent, Disney, Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway, and Kidz Bop.
Kelly has extensive professional training and holds a 1st class honours degree in Popular Music, a PgCert in Education and a MA in Music Therapy. She has been Principle Lecturer at BIMM London for 11 years and travels across Europe leading specialist masterclasses in contemporary vocal techniques.
When she isn’t coaching or performing with her company Songbird Sessions, you’ll find her arranging and conducting various contemporary choirs in London and the South East.
