University of Broadford: Bonkers Band of Broadford Course Overview

Dear Parents/Carers

Please find below the course overview for the 'Bonkers Band of Broadford' course:


The Bonkers Broadford Band


Ambitious Aims


What does it take for people to come together to create music? How does it feel to perform in front of a live audience? Get ready to leave your comfort zone and try something completely new! Building on the success of ‘Boomwhacker Bonanza’, 2017 brings a chance to work together and create a musical event that will be truly memorable. The Bonkers Broadford Band welcomes both those who already sing or play an instrument as well as those who have never played a note before. Together, we will put together a multi-instrumental extravaganza that will have the audience on the edge of their seats! By the end of the course, the children will have gained an insight into what it takes to create a musical performance and will hopefully develop and grow their own life-long interest in
