Free Adult Taster Group Sessions

Benefit from the Social, Mental and Emotional benefits of playing an instrument.

Have you always wanted to play an instrument and never had the time to?  Did you play an instrument as a child, give it up and find yourself saying “wished I hadn’t given up”? Then one of our Free Adult Taster Sessions is for you!

Our teachers are running 1 hour FREE sessions for small groups of adults, to come in and have a go at a variety of instruments.  The sessions will involve groups of up to 10 people (depending on instrument supply) and the teacher will run through the basics of the instrument and then give you the chance to have a go.  The sessions are targeted at Adults who are available during the daytime and looking to either revisit an instrument, or start something completely new.

We are running these sessions throughout May, June and July and are offering the following instruments:

Instrument Date Time
Violin May 8th - Wednesday 12:30 - 13:30
Ukulele May 15th - Wednesday 14:00 - 15:00

Harp July 9th - Tuesday 14:30 - 15:30

Sessions will be held in our Tunbridge Wells branch upstairs in our Music School. If you have your own instrument you're more than welcome to bring it but for those who are trying for the first time, instruments will be provided.
