Beginner Playalong

The best thing about playing an instrument is joining in with others, so we present the Beginner Playalong sessions.

Beginner Playalong sessions are for: 

  • Complete beginners who want to start playing with others

  • Experienced musicians who want to experiment with a new instrument

  • Musicians with kids who want a family friendly, screen-free space to join in with others.

It’s not for kids, although they are very welcome to join in. We’re creating a multi-generational evening of interruptions and food and laughter and everyone creating music in a casual atmosphere. Kids are welcome to bring chalk or games or cards or marbles or drawing stuff . 

How does it work?

Each session we focus on only one key. All songs will be in the evening’s nominated key and use common chord progressions, using only four chords (I, IV, V, VI of the scale).

Your playing can be as simple (playing only the four main notes/chords all night) or as complicated as you like.  All you need to know to participate is the four chords for the evening.

Contact us via email if you would  like more information, or want to register to come to the next Playalong.
