The Volunteer Team and Project
The team meet during the evening every other week in the city centre and are planning an exciting week of music making activities during half term in February 2015. They are planning on offering free drumming, ukulele and singing workshops for children and adults leading to some very special first performances on Saturday 21st February. The project will lead people with little or no music making experience up to performance standard. We are still looking for other keen volunteers to join the team to help plan and deliver the first stage of our project.
Community Music Volunteer
My name is Christina Smith and I am passionate when it comes to every aspect of music particularly in the areas of song writing and performance. I am currently studying a BA Hons degree in Performance Industries at the University of Wolverhampton. I believe this will eventually lead me into a self employed career teaching performance and unique song writing skills to individuals from all walks of life.
My name is Laura Hand and I'm a final year Business Management student at the University of Birmingham. I’m interested in opening my own social enterprise in the creative industry in the future so I'm excited to get involved with the Our Big Gig Extra project as I believe it will give me the chance to give back to the community, develop my business skills and network with other like-minded people in the area.
