Welcome To The Band Academy Blog!

December 5th, 2019


We are Live and ready to rock and roll, so if you are an adult and consider yourself a beginner musician who has a dream to learn the guitar, bass and or singer-songwriting then The Band Academy is the place for you... 

The Band Academy is not about trying to make it in the music industry, it's simply about learning, playing and enjoying music for musics sake. That said you will learn valuable knowledge, gain valuable skills and have fantastic experiences of eventually playing live in a Band.

How does it work?

The number one most important aspect of what makes The Band Academy work is the members' willingness to learn. The Band Academy promotes a positive culture that encourages, helps and supports everyones musical aspirations. We meet at 7:30 pm on Tuesdays ( click for location ) and get stuck into the various subjects that are sure to make you a better musician...

A typical night is outlined on the academy page of our website ( click for info on the academy ).

What do you need?

You need to choose between learning the Guitar or Bass and ideally have the following kit: 

  • Electric Guitar or Bass

  • Practice amp

  • Plectrums 

  • Music Stand

  • Headphones

  • Folder 

  • Pad & Pen

  • Tuner

What's the aim?

The goal is to give adult beginners a place to go to interact with other budding musicians who are a similar level and gain experience of what it's like to play in a Band. It's about the positive social interaction that playing music together creates. It's also about creating opportunities that encourage you to focus and improve your playing.


Every so often I lay out a challenge to focus and improve your playing. They are called achievements and they vary depending on what the individual members of the academy need and where the group is heading. You always have the choice to opt-in or out, however, if you opt-in then these achievements create short periods of a more intense focus than can help move your ability forward and develop your confidence as a musician too.

It's New & Exciting

The Band Academy has been in development as an idea for a long time, in practice I have been experimenting with ideas for years. We launched officially in 2019 so it's all new and very exciting. The amount growth thus fas has been fantastic so come along and join in the fun...
