Blackpool Music Service Search:

Student Spotlight

Playing with other young musicians is key to strong musical progress and really helps to enhance the joy of learning to play a musical instrument.

Blackpool is alive with Music groups for Children and Young people of all levels.

There are so many to choose from: Rock and Pop groups, Orchestras, Wind bands, Jazz groups, Samba bands, groups for single instruments (flutes, clarinets, guitars).

We want to 'spotlight' our talented musicians and gain an insight to what makes them tick and who/what influenced them to make the decision to learn the instrument/s of their choice.

This will be an ongoing story and different students will be added to this page to share theirs.
