This project was funded on 06 Nov 2019!

We want to start new rock and pop classes/ events on site at Graiseley Music School in the next academic year.Like everything we do, we are focused on doing this with authenticity and quality. We need to buy PA systems, amps and instruments. Existing lighting in our Centre Stage hall is effective, but the power station and controls are old requiring them to be set up and set down hours before and after each performance. As such, it doesn't get used as often as it could! We've had some professional advice and with some investment these can be permanently installed and upgraded to include LED lamps and app based controls. Our vision is to showcase the rock and pop talent of the children participating in our new rock and pop classes and to help promote those young people in bands across the city of Wolverhampton. All of our 14 Music Service groups are free of charge to parents and young people. This will be no different but we need your help to raise the initial investment costs.

What we'll deliver:

  • Buy new euipment
  • Launch a new rock and pop evening class
  • Create events to showcase Wolverhampton talent

Why it's a great idea:

We know that young people like all sorts of Music. We know that young people need more activities to do outside of school. We know that Wolverhampton has a proud history of rocker and rollers! We have a history of over 50 years providing really high quality groups, bands and orchestras outside of schools. BUT....we don't yet run a weekly programme for those children and young people interested in songwriting, joining a band or performing on stage in an authentic venue. We teach 5500 children a week in schools and we know there is demand for more Rock and Pop opportunities in the city. We need your help and promise to deliver something special for these children. We keep our promises!

Steps to get it done:

  • Our rock and pop classes will start after half term in October 2019
  • Our lights will be installed during the half term break in October, already provisionally agreed with our suppliers.
  • Our first rock and pop showcase will take place in Spring 2020

We have a history of support from our Friends group - The Friends of Wolverhampton Music Service. Two members are already pledging to do a bike ride from Lands End to John O Groats in support of this rock an pop ambition.
