Learn­ing mu­sic – no fret

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

VYN­ERS Academy in Ick­en­ham has signed up a Brazil­ian-born singer song­writer to teach rock mu­sic classes.

Bianca Obina will en­cour­age young peo­ple aged seven to 18 to de­velop their vo­cal tal­ents when The Rock Pro­ject runs weekly evening classes at the school in War­ren Road from this month.

The award-win­ning artist, who has a mas­ters de­gree in song-writ­ing, re­leased her first al­bum Artesa in 2013. She joined a se­ries of taster ses­sions at the school in July and is look­ing for­ward to the of­fi­cial launch of Rock Pro­ject this month.

Bianca said: “It’s won­der­ful to have the op­por­tu­nity to help young peo­ple learn and make mu­sic to­gether in such an in­spir­ing en­vi­ron­ment. Prit­pal Chitroda, who gave up a suc­cess­ful ca­reer as a char­tered ac­coun­tant to launch the Rock Pro­ject in Ick­en­ham, ex­plained how im­por­tant it is for stu­dents to learn from work­ing mu­si­cians.

“Hav­ing a mu­si­cian of the cal­i­bre of Bianca on board helps to in­spire the stu­dents, it also builds their con­fi­dence to get up and per­form.”

The Rock Pro­ject, which has 30 fran­chises across the UK, teaches guitar, bass, drums and vo­cals to young peo­ple.

The ses­sions at Vyn­ers School Academy will be on Thurs­days from 4.15pm-6.15pm for 7 to 11 year olds and 6.30pm to 8.30pm for 12 to 18 year olds.
