Been a long time since you Rocked and Rolled?
Get Gigging is our adult rock band project for bedroom guitarists, hairbrush divas, rusty drummers and lapsed musicians. It’s about making music for fun, bringing together musicians to discover and rediscover the joys of being in a band.
Over the duration of this 6-week course you will form bands, rehearse songs, compose original material and play a showcase gig.
The weekly sessions are supported by Readipop’s team of experienced professional musicians. The weekly sessions are a combination of rehearsal time, structured workshops and individualised support.
Sessions are held at Readipop Studios, Reading’s biggest studio complex with 4 purpose built rehearsal studios and a recording studio originally designed and built by legendary producer Martin Rushent. Each rehearsal studio comes with a full backline (Tama kits, Laney amps, cabs and combos) thanks to generous support from Dawsons Reading.
We are not looking for advanced playing skills, but neither is it a programme for complete beginners – you need some degree of competence on your chosen instrument. We will match you with like-minded players.
