Virtual Band

Live online rehearsal and workshop

The world has changed and everybody is self isolating. Nothing can be more frustrating than not being able to play music in a group.

We have created a new idea where music students can still be part of a regular band online. 


This is an hour long rehearsal/workshop with demos and advice on performance and improvisation. 

Participants receive a worksheet with licks and scales for the current month’s track.



Students then have until the end of the month to record themselves with their phone or camera, playing to the track provided. Earphones must be used to hear the backing track while recording. 

Students then send their video and watch their contribution on a keepsake performance with other musicians – see the demonstration video above.


What Instrument Can I Play?

We have music for C, Bb and Eb instruments, including piano, guitar, drums and bass. 

If you would like to take part and cannot see the music you require, please contact me and I will be happy to assist you.

Next Virtual Band: 7pm (UK time) Tuesday 29th September 

If you would like to take part please email me and I will be in contact with the next step. 

The cost is £10 for the Workshop and £15 for the Video. 

Newbury Sax School members can attend the Workshop free of charge.
