Our Music Room and our Ukulele Group 

                  

 

Our fantastic music room is equipped with several acoustic and electric instruments (including guitars and keyboards), Marshall amplifiers, and a varied range of good-quality percussion instruments.

 

We have recently had our guitars re-strung and re-conditioned, complete with brand new leads, so they're all ready to rock!  

 

With volunteer support offering over 50 years' guitar-playing experience, clients are warmly welcomed to play, sing along and 'have a go', regardless of experience or ability. It doesn't matter whether a client used to play, or has never picked up an instrument - everyone's welcome to give it a try.

 

Our diverse array of music and lyric  books support clients of all abilities, enabling them to further enjoy music. Jam sessions are frequently enjoyed! 

 

           

Ukulele Group

 

Facilitator Freyja (herself a member of the Raund Ukulele Orchestra) offers a friendly and fun Ukulele Group each Tuesday morning here at the centre. All clients are warmly welcomed and a diverse, varied range of songs are learnt and played. Our players even played live at a recent fundraising concert!

Fish & Chip quiz night, 26th January!

To aid their funding, they've organised a Fish & Chip Quiz  night on Saturday 26th January at Saxon Hall, Raunds, with all proceeds going towards their event. You may remember the choir from the incredible performance they gave alongside the Headway musicians, 'The Custard Caterpillars' back in October!
