Band Sessions for 12-18 year-olds are the ultimate opportunity to meet like-minded musicians and play live gigs in London.
Academy Band Sessions
Band members spend the first half of the session working on their song parts in small groups of drummers, guitarists, bassists and singers. The second half of the session is the band rehearsal, where the groups join together to jam their songs. With a teaching team made up of a drum tutor, guitar tutor and vocal tutor, each student receives focussed technical advice, while improving their musicianship by learning to work in bands with their peers.
Young musicians who have developed greater independence in their playing and established music tastes are ready to form their own band. Friends often form bands together, but we can also help you to find band members with similar interests and ambitions. These sessions offer the chance rehearse, write, record, play gigs and uncover the mysteries of the music business. Bands take advantage of mentoring from industry professionals and some even release music on our own label.
Gigs & Recordings
RS bands have graced the stage at Camp Bestival, The Borderline, The Troubadour and many more top venues. All bands lay down demos in our recording studio, and the most dedicated end up recording in some of London's finest recording studios and releasing tracks on our indie label RS Recordings.
Tyland by Hen-Jenny and Grin by Indigo Husk were released on RS Recordings in March 2015.
