A Very Brighton Project: Rizzle Kicks Drummer Helps Local Youngsters To Get Foot On Industry Ladder

An amazing collaboration between The Band Project, Rizzle Kicks drummer - Lewis Whittington and the Brighton Guitar Academy will offer a unique free music workshop for local youngsters at Brighton Electric, later this month.

 The day will provide them with the opportunity to play in a band, perform live and learn what it takes to succeed in today's music industry. 

Lewis will offer expert advice and tuition for aspiring drummers and tutors from the Brighton Guitar Academy will work closely with singers and musicians.
The workshop will also encourage children taking part to be inspired by different styles of music and learn how they can develop their musical skills and knowledge.
Creator and founder, Chris explains: "We are thrilled to be able to offer this free workshop to children in Brighton and want to thank Lewis and the Brighton Guitar Academy for their support and enthusiasm.

"There is no better moment than when you're onstage rocking out with your band mates, the crowd is going crazy and everyone can't stop smiling and dancing and we're all committed to giving young musicians the opportunity to experience exactly that!" 
Chris continues: "We are driven by our passion for music and live performance and we want local families to be just as enthused about this project – it"s an amazing opportunity to learn from current pop stars and expert tutors and we want to give young musicians the chance to start their own musical journey in a supportive environment."

The free workshops, on Saturday 27th September, are available for children and teenagers aged 8 – 16 and are on a first come, first served basis.
Pre-registering for a place in this unique workshop is vital to ensure your child doesn"t miss out. Please visit, email or call 07771 456955.
