IS BACK!

After a couple of years off for Covid, Sound returns in partnership with St James.

Since 2015 Sound has supported young local musicians with gigs, festival slots, mentor sessions and our own monthly nights. The partnership with St James will allow us to expand the range of support Sound can offer, and increase the number of events we can hold. Starting with three weeks of free mentor sessions, the Sound nights will return in Autumn ’22, ahead of the launch of a new dedicated venue, studio and practise room later in the year.

A SOUND night at St James in 2017

The Sound Summer Sessions see the return of the very popular SOUND Craft Mentor sessions at St James. Covering all aspects of music performance, promotion, song writing and even sound and light, the sessions are free to young people between 11 and 21 years old. The format is that of a very relaxed group session with two mentors and a safeguarding supervisor present. Here’s some information on what happens:

The SOUND Sessions are generously supported by Guernsey Arts

what to expect

  • Group sessions of up to 20 people.
  • Different sessions concentrate on different subjects and some of the content will be decided in the opening discussion with the students present.
  • A relaxed, fun, informal learning experience, with great mentors.
  • A safe place to be as good or bad as you think you are.
  • The opportunity to take what you learn and use it at St James in the future.
  • An excellent end of session party at the end of August.

what not to expect

  • There is NO one to one tuition on how to play an instrument
  • Parents or guardians cannot sit in or hang around
  • Scores, rankings, results, reports or notes
