With no prior musical knowledge required, this programme can run for a capacity of 40 pax per session, and involves the various instruments employed in a contemporary band setting: drums, vocals, keyboards, bass and guitar.

Participants will be guided by experienced trainers throughout the session, initially in smaller groups then as one huge band when they come together to play through each song.

  • Learn New Musical and Life Skills

  • Develop the Language of Teamwork and Collaboration

  • Increase Self-Confidence through Overcoming Challenges

How It’s Done

We have developed a sure-fire way of teaching music to any level of learner – and it is through this system that will see participants be able to successfully traverse their musical journey. There will be sectionals where they will first learn, and then consequently rehearse in smaller units before coming together at the end to play as one huge band.

  • No Musical Background Required

  • Individualised Learning, followed by Sectional/Group Rehearsals

  • Constant Engagement for All Involved!

Outcome

Participants will have played through two songs as a band – functioning in perfect harmony from start to finish. There will be an interactive discussion at the tail of this, where the instructors engage participants verbally on a number of topics such as the importance of listening and being listened to, and the challenges faced during the session and how they were overcome. Participants will leave with new skills that are directly transferable usable in everyday life.

This is an eight week music programme that has been developed with kids at risk in mind.

Over the duration of these eight weeks, the learners will discover more about themselves and each other as they pick up new instrumental skills and overcome challenges together as a band.

There will be heightened levels of self-reflection and discussion of learning points throughout, enhancing teacher-student relationships and fostering a safe environment imbued with feelings of guidance and support.

  • Uncover Strengths, Discover Passion

  • Increase Self-Confidence through Overcoming Challenges

  • Attain Tools to Succeed and Forge Positive Paths in Life

How It’s Done

Learners will be guided by highly experienced music instructors as they try out various instruments that range from drums to guitar through a number of different songs – with a rotational system employed to let them have ample time to explore and get to know the various instruments. They will learn five songs by the end of this course, with a final performance held in the last week. Music lessons that cover concepts such as time-feel and tone-production will be conducted to supplement their learning journey. They will also be taught showmanship skills around the art of performing, that touch on concepts such as stage presence and confidence.  A masterclass conducted in the fifth week by industry professionals will both inspire and encourage them to strive for greater heights.

This is a thirty week programme that introduces students to playing music in a band – an activity that has been proven to enhance cognitive learning and facilitate growth in many areas of human development, i.e. motivation, social skills, time management, situational awareness and aesthetic appreciation.

Our flagship music programme involves a multitude of activities over the course of a year, from technique and stylistic lessons, music theory and sight-reading, improvisation and time-feel concepts, sound-engineering workshops, all the way to marketing and production skills required to put on a successful concert.  Learners will be going through fundamentals from a musical theory standpoint and understanding how it relates to their instrument, for example understanding how chords are derived from major scales, and applying scalar knowledge in improvisation. They will learn about tones and textures, and the various ways to achieve certain types of sounds that have been made famous through use in popular music.

There will be listening sessions held to introduce learners to music history both on a global and local scale to gain understanding and familiarity with the development and diversity of the music industry.  Masterclasses and workshops will be conducted by industry professionals, geared towards arming learners with knowledge around career options as well as to be a source of guidance and inspiration for them as they embark on their own journey.

The In-sync team bonding experience we had was amazing. They really successfully facilitated our team, with majority of us not having prior music training, to play in a band and sound good! It is definitely worth a shot for those who are looking to have their team bonding done in a pleasantly unique manner.
