Beginner Friendly Groups (BFG)

Beginner Friendly Groups are for children aged 7 to 11 who have started to learn a guitar, string, brass or woodwind instrument.

These one hour sessions consist of a group warm up, rhythmic games and of course playing great music together in a friendly environment.

Come along at 10.30am, drop off at 10.15am on Saturday mornings at The Blandford School.

Directions: enter the Blandford School by the Milldown Primary School entrance (not the leisure centre).  Drive past the Milldown Primary School and the Blandford School buildings.  We are in the last building on the right hand side before the big locked gates.

Although the BFG's are for beginners, you will rehearse alongside many other musicians so you will feel part of our Dorset Young Musicians community.
