How much will it cost?

We offer 4 sessions of the big band for £30. Because of the nature of the group we try and encourage band members to attend each week so that you get to build a good relationship with your other Wirral big band members. This is the main reason that we do not offer the Wirral Jazz Band as a drop in session.

I don’t really like Jazz Music so not sure this is for me!

Jazz is not everybody’s cup of tea. Wirral Music Factory drum tutor Matt had no interest in it at all!

When I was studying music in college I had no interest in Jazz, Latin Music. I wanted to improve my playing and also open my mind to new styles of music so I went along to the college Big Band. It was amazing! It was just so different to anything I had played before and it really brought my playing and reading along. Even if you don’t like Jazz give it a go, it might surprise you!
