Participation and Outreach

Mr. Wilson’s Second Liners are on a mission to increase the uptake and quality of processional and street music in community settings across the UK.

Our core team of experienced workshop facilitators can offer a range of bespoke training and participation opportunities.

We want to share our extensive experience in outdoor performance, inspiring workshop participants to take their music to the streets.

We also know all about instrument tuition and repair, managing bands, arranging music, getting musicians and audiences dancing, adapting material for outdoor contexts and costuming.  

We are all DBS checked and several members of our team hold PGCE qualifications, M.Ed. and advanced training for teaching pupils with autism and SEN.

If you or your community band is interested in learning more about playing music outdoors, please get in touch. 

Previous training packages have included:

  • Two-day intensive residential for with established bands
  • One-day CPD training course for experienced bandleaders and musicians
  • HEI professional preparation workshops
  • Key Stage 3-4 participation workshops and collaborative performances
  • Key Stage 1-4 and SEN school assemblies and workshops

We are also happy to make presentations and host conversations around getting new bands up and running.

We are currently developing classroom resources to benefit teachers that want to continue the learning after our visit. In the mean time, you can download free charts for your band here, specially arranged for you by Mr. Wilson’s Second Liners.  Happy playing!
