We’re building a pop-up studio where community members of all ages & abilities can experience being rockstars – performing their favourite songs as a band, without needing previous musical experience!

Many people dream of being in a rock band or playing along to their favourite pop songs. The problem however is that it takes years of practice in order to get good enough to do so. As a result, many people are put off learning an instrument or give up too soon. At Be the Band, we’re on a mission to make group music-making accessible for the whole community – regardless of age, ability, or previous musical experience. To do this we use innovative technology that enables participants to perform their favourite songs from the very first session, allowing everyone to experience the joy of performing. Since 2020 we’ve operated a mobile service – visiting schools and giving workshops to pupils. Now for the first time, we're looking to open a semi-permanent home where we can make our sessions available to the wider community. We have already identified and secured the perfect location. With your help, we will build and kit out the space so the people of Camden can all become rockstars!

What we'll deliver:

  • A pop-up studio where community members of all ages and abilities can make music together
  • Free music workshops for local school groups
  • Creation of new jobs for local residents

Why it's a great idea:

As part of our social mission, we will be opening our studio during term-time so local school groups can come and take part in free educational music workshops. What’s more, our interactive experience will provide a new fun activity for local residents, and the wider community, whilst bringing a much-needed boost to the high street where many retail units still remain boarded up.

Steps to get it done:

  • Approve designs of pop-up studio
  • Build pop-up studio
  • Host launch event
  • Welcome 1000th customer!
