New rock music school adds extra free-to-attend taster day

September 2, 2019

A new rock music school has organised an additional free-to-attend taster day in Shrewsbury this coming weekend.

Backbeat Music School, which will launch towards the end of this month and already held very popular introductory sessions in Shrewsbury, Wem and Market Drayton, has arranged another date in the county town for next Sunday 08 September at the Stage 2 Performing Arts Academy, off Telford Way.

Running for a ten week term at a time, the school is open to people of all abilities in the age groups seven to 12, 13 to 18 and 18 to 90 years old. It holds appropriate public liability insurance and all tutors are safeguarding and DBS registered.

Ian Fourie from Backbeat Music School, said: “It’s been a crazy month and the sessions we’re run so far have been very busy, with lots of people booked up for the first term. However, since the inaugural taster day at The Flaxmill in August, we’ve received more enquiries from Shrewsbury residents, hence the need to organise an additional event; which is very encouraging.”

Backbeat Music School’s additional free taster day on Sunday 08 August at Stage 2 Performing Arts Academy will run from 12pm until 3pm. Refreshments will be provided. For more information or to book a place contact Adam Knight by email
