Raven Fledgelings

The Raven Fledgelings is an occasional, informal group for budding musicians, aged 8-18 years old. Organised and funded by The Raven Folk Club in Chester, the group is free to attend and aims to give youngsters the chance to make new friends and learn to play tunes together as a group. Music teacher and professional musician Fluff is in charge of the session, assisted by fiddle player Phoebe Rees and with the support of some of Fluff’s existing students from Cheshire East.

All stringed instruments are welcome, along with woodwind and brass (although it would be helpful if players of Bb instruments such as clarinet, sax and most brass, could transpose themselves) As a guide, if you can play ‘Twinkle ,Twinkle’ with reasonable fluency, this is the group for you!

Musicians can be dropped off at Westminster Road Community Centre at 11.30 am. Please provide an emergency contact number, ensure that the kids have any medical equipment such as inhalers with them, and inform Debbie Lee of any allergies/relevant medical conditions. Please return at 1.15pm to enjoy a short performance of what has been learnt.

If you have any further questions, please contact Debbie on dlee@newtonprimary.cheshire.sch.uk
