Drum and Brass is a Community Interest Company whose mission is “To Do Music Differently”And one of our strategies is to introduce Children who live in inner city Leicester to the joys of playing instruments from a young age. Local Children are invited to attend different after school music sessions every day of the week with fees set at a low rate.
The project is financially supported by the Leicestershire music Hub and some Children are able to access reduced fees making the sessions affordable for all.
Having previously created episodes about the orchestra which meets on a Tuesday and the Steampunk project which runs on a Friday.
We asked our podcaster John Sinclair to visit the Woodgate Resources Center and interview the teachers and students at the other three clubs. And in this episode, you'll hear him talking to Mikey Boun who runs the samba drumming sessions on Mondays and teaches musical skills on Wednesdays and Dave Collins who teaches Children to play trumpets and other brass instruments on Thursdays.
John also talks to Sim My who, who coordinates the music sessions at the Woodgate Resources Center in Leicester.
