You will join an already thriving course that provides expert advice to emerging bands, vocalists, solo musicians, producers to name a few.

An opportunity has arisen within the Dukes Creative Learning Department for three aspiring music makers within the Lancaster region to join ‘That Music Thing’ for the remainder of the Autumn term (Until Thursday the 15th of December.) And for the entirety of the Spring term. (January – April 2016)

The sessions are run by the Dukes duo of Lee Affen and Rick Smithson. Lee and Rick have a wealth of experience working both professionally with the BBC and with young people.

So for £5 a session why don’t you come down and join us from 4.30pm – 6.30pm every Thursday and make some music with ‘That Music Thing?’
