Young people in Wrexham can rock out for free
January 10, 2012 by Lyndon
Young people in the Wrexham area have the opportunity to try their hand at becoming a rock star thanks to a new initiative that is being rolled out in the region.
The Rock Project is a scheme run by musicians, which aims to help young people to form their own bands; encouraging skills like teamwork, communication and negotiation. Lessons are given in bass, guitar, drums and singing and there are also interactive quizzes on the history of music.
The Rock Project has partnered with the local young people’s initiative in the region, Young Wrexham, to offer free music lessons to 7-16 year olds. To book their free lessons, young people need to pick up a leaflet from the Wrexham Info Shop, which is located on Chester Street.
Leaflets like this are often used by local organisations and businesses as a way to offer an incentive to prospective customers. By using local print shops in Wrexham, local companies can create eye-catching leaflets and flyers using full colour digital printing.
Wrexham’s young people who pick up a leaflet can attend a free of charge two-hour lesson from The Rock Project at the organisation’s base at Rhosddu Community Centre. The free workshops are held in the morning on Saturdays and need to be booked in advance.
Young Wrexham have expressed that the free lessons will only be given to those with a leaflet, so to avoid disappointment, the organisation is encouraging people to visit Wrexham Info Shop to pick up their copy.
