WRS Band Sessions

New Rock & Pop Workshops

We are really excited to be starting new commercial workshops to support our charitable activities in May 2019

Who? – Our new Tutors are Andrea Goldsworthy and Matthew Church who are experienced musicians and teachers.

What? – You willdevise original songs, using and developing your musical skills along the way. We will provide all the instruments.

When? – Most Wednesday afternoon / evenings during school terms

  • 5.00 - 6.15 for 8 -10 year olds / 11 – 13 year olds
  • 6.30 – 7.45 for 11 – 13 year olds / 14 -16 year olds

    The dates for this initial half-term will be 1st, 8th, 15th and 22nd May.

– WRS Studios, 1st Floor, Unit 12, Winnall Valley Road, Winchester, SO23 0LD

Why? – Because we want to spread the joy of making music.

How much? – Sessions cost £20 per week paid upfront for each half-term.

Forming the bands and age groups – We will form up to 2 bands per age group with drums, bass, guitar, keys and vocals. Each band will contain 4-6 members depending on the skills and interest available – so, for instance, we may have 2 guitarists and / or keyboard players. Everyone is welcome to sing, with or without an instrument.

Contact us to find out more.


This is our regular band night, when we split into groups, write songs, play together and rehears for our gigs. Learn how to play in a band on drums, guitar, bass, keyboards or singing. Led by Chris Redmond and a team of brilliant tutors.
