It's Just The Beginning
The Band Academy started early 2019 with a small group of absolute beginner musicians who wanted to try out a new way of learning music. We are continually coming up with new ideas to stimulate learning and cultivate a love for music.
I believe there are many adults with instruments in their homes gathering dust not because they don't have the talent but because they haven't yet seen a clear direction for their musical aspirations.
It's also challenging to form a band or find other musicians at a similar level to practice with. The Band Academy aims to fix this and provides a place for adult amateur musicians to go and find other musicians to connect with.
I like to think of the band a bit like a coach would think of his team. I look for peoples strengths and weaknesses in order to try and work out where best I can help them.
The coaches job is to become redundant as the role is really about helping to spark off the inner desire to grow as a musician and when this happens who knows how far you can take it.
All who train at The Band Academy are in The Band. We are aiming to create a positive and encouraging culture that inspires, motivates and educates everyone to get better.
Music can be a selfless pursuit when you decide to serve the song and be the best band member you can be. Your ability as a musician will flourish along with your enjoyment of music when you take this approach.
