West Kent Music Explorers is open to all types of instrumentalists and will introduce essential ensemble skills as well as creative musical skill-building activities, improvisation and singing.

Most importantly it will be fun, allowing participants to make new friends and explore their musical interests!

This group is the ideal next step for those who have been learning their instrument for a year or more, either through whole class, small group or individual tuition, or who are self-taught, and between beginner and Grade 2/3 standard (or equivalent).

All instruments welcome.
