What is Kickstart Band?
Kickstart Band is Big Noise Raploch’s pre-beginner woodwind, brass and percussion programme. Children in P4, 5 and 6 have the chance to learn the basics of band playing on really fun plastic instruments - the recorder, the PBuzz and classroom percussion.
They learn how to create a sound, how to read and play simple tunes, and how to play together as a group. There are loads of fun games involved too!
This year, because of Covid-19, unfortunately we aren’t able to deliver the Kickstart programme in school as we usually do, but don’t worry - Kickstart Band is still happening!
We’re starting weekly fun and interactive online Kickstart Band sessions after school, starting after the October holidays. We’ll deliver a Kickstart instrument and your very own starter music and activity book to your door, and then you can join us online to make your very own Big Noise.
