Music taster sessions at iconic Sunderland venue

Have your say

VISITORS to studios in Sunderland can try their hand at a host of musical instruments.

The Bunker, in Stockton Road, will be opening its doors on Saturday to offer free taster lessons as part of National Learn to Play Day.

Music for All, the charity of the UK musical instrument industry, has organised the first annual event to encourage participation and re-ignite people’s passion for playing music.

The Bunker will offer free lessons on a variety of instruments, supported by specially-trained staff and additional guidance on getting started learning to play music.

Following on from this, The Bunker will be running songwriting and performance skills workshops throughout Easter for anyone aged under 18.

The day-long sessions will be held on both Wednesdays over the two-week holiday and will offer any young musician the chance to develop their skills for free.

Spaces are limited, so anyone interested in attending should apply by contacting The Bunker via email or by calling 567 1777. More information is available at website
