Big Play Days 2018

Big Play Days provide an opportunity for budding young musicians to gain their first experience of playing in an ensemble. It’s very informal, focusing on fun and friendship.

There is no minimum standard, everyone is welcome so why not come along and join in the fun! You will meet other like-minded young people and receive professional guidance in what it means to be part of an ensemble.

Your local Big Play Day will be at a Berkshire Maestros Music Centre. The cost is just £3.

You can join other young people from your area playing similar instruments to you and have fun making music.

Further information to parents and carers:

Over the recent weeks your child has been learning a musical instrument with Berkshire Maestros at school.

As part of this project we offer students the opportunity to join us for a Big Play Day at your local music centre. This is the chance for your child to join a band for an hour or two to practise some pieces in a large group. We invite you to come and listen to a short performance of their work at the end of the session. We think you will be surprised and delighted at what they can achieve.

The cost of the event is just £3 per child. Not sure which instrument group your child's instrument falls into? Have a look at our instrument groupings chart.

We hope your child will be able to join us and discover the fun they can have being part of a band.
