Mind The Gap describes itself as a Community Music Group, which means we consider all those who take part in our activities as our members. We are professional musicians, music tutors, keen amateurs and beginners. Our valuable volunteers and tutors support both individual learning and group practice sessions, in a wide range of musical styles.
We love it when people bring along their own instruments, but we do have a huge cupboard full of plenty more, many of which were kindly donated to us. So if you want to have a go at learning something new, or re-engage with an old favourite, we might have what you don’t! We also encourage singers, especially those yet to find their voice; get behind the microphone and see what you have to say.
Our members include people with a variety of backgrounds. Some of us have, or have had in the past, difficulties with maintaining mental wellbeing, or simply find everyday life a bit of a chore. We encourage each other to get through those inevitable down times, and believe passionately that by making music together, we can build relationships based on mutual regard as well as shared enjoyment, which will help us all survive and thrive.
