The WELR Big Local will be introducing local social music sessions in the upcoming months.
The aim is to offer an open session available based on the SMART music ethos that music can be a helpful and therapeutic means of communication, interaction and expression.
People are encouraged to meet and socialise together, sharing music, singing solos if you wish or just listen and enjoy a good cup of coffee and cake! We have a variety of instruments including a keyboard and percussion. The ethos is one of inclusivity, so it doesn’t matter whether you can play an instrument or not, and there is no judgement on skill as such, we operate a culture of encouraging everyone to engage in music, and to try singing or playing if they want to.
The Big Local SMART music cafe is an opportunity for you to meet with others in a relaxed session where making and sharing music is the aim. No pressure to sing or perform! However, we do encourage everyone to try it – come along, listen, see what’s going on, enjoy coffee and cake, meet new people, try something new.
