Since the first Scratch Studios drum sessions got underway several weeks ago at Summerfield Community Centre, the sessions have been met with much success and enthusiastic engagement. Participants can learn new and additional music skills, including drum, bass, guitar and woodwind, and will begin developing studio knowledge over the coming weeks.
This arm of the project runs in collaboration with the new Folly Motion Festival that ‘On The Edge’ is producing for early December. The doors are always open for newcomers.
This project is made possible by support from Awards for All, National Lottery funding and Birmingham City Council, Culture on Your Doorstep funding.
Second Scratch Studio project in Kings Heath
‘On The Edge’ rolls out the second series of Scratch Studios at Kings Heath Community Centre on Thursday 18th October, 6:30 to 7:30pm. All newcomers welcome, the project is aimed at ages 14 to 25, and supports participants in working towards gaining new or additional music skills, Arts Awards and performance experience.
The sessions are lead by drummer John Hirst and bassist Josh Taylor, with future opportunities to incorporate visiting musicians and producers as participants needs require.
