Weekend Rockers offers the chance for ANYONE & EVERYONE regardless of age, gender and experience or skill level to get in a band and make some music!!!
Depending on musical taste, experience and availability participants attend one or more COACHED sessions per week and commit to an initial 6 week course.
After the initial course Weekend Rocker’s then have the choice to continue on another 6 week journey with the current band, or join a new band and meet new musicians, diversifying the experience and broadening your musical network or maybe even repeating the experience on another instrument!
There are no limits, rules or boundaries for the Circle Music, Weekend Rocker’s only good times, musical growth and the realization of life long goals.
We also have the facilities to record audio and video of every session, providing instant feedback and a learning experience that cannot be equaled.
With our in-house audio engineer, videographer, stylist and photographer we can even produce promotional material of the highest quality and help our band’s get out into the world and gigging just as soon as they’re ready!!!

What tunes make up the Weekend Rocker’s repertoire?
As all bands are made up of individuals with common interests, musical tastes and experiences, the repertoire of each band will be somewhat unique and be decided by the band, with input from the coach during the first few weeks of the journey.
What instruments are involved and what do I need to bring?
This one is easy… as much or as little as you like!!! We can provide all the equipment or you can bring your own. The most common instruments are vocals, acoustic and electric guitar, bass guitar, keyboard and drums but if you want to add something else to the mix your are more then welcome!!! Recent additions to the Weekend Rockers program have included ukulele, saxophone, piano accordion, flute, trumpet, steel drums, congas and percussion.
How much does it cost?
When and how can I start?
As soon as you’re ready. Participants register their interest with Matt then (depending on time and availability) either attend an open jam session to determine musical interest’s and tastes or join an already established band currently working through the Weekend Rocker’s program.
What if my skills are not up to scratch?
The Circle Music motto is “LEARN TO PLAY”, whatever you’re skills and experience are we will work with you and help you to achieve your goals.
Maybe that means taking some additional private lessons while you’re in the program?
