Event description

Description

The Community Music Project (CMP) encourages musicans and singers to share their passion for music with others. The CMP's vision is to create a movement of community music sharing and unlock the collective talents of musicians and singers across Australia.

At these sessions, you will get a chance to perform in a relaxed and informal environment. It's also a great opportunity to meet and listen to other like-minded musicians perform from your local area. The sessions are held at Ben and Danai's House in Marrickville, in our cozy lounge room which fits about 10 people.

FAQs

What standard of music do I need to be?

The purpose of the CMP is to encourage people to share music with each other. We are open to all levels of experience, we only require that you are willing to participate in sharing your musical talents with others!

What do I play?

Come prepared with one or two short pieces (up to 5 minutes each) that you enjoy playing - the genre is completley up to you. At previous sessions, we have had a mixture of Classical, Folk, Pop, Indie, Jazz and Musical Theatre.

What can I expect?

Feel free to visit/follow us on Instagram to see photos and videos of our previous Lounge Sessions: https://www.instagram.com/community_musicproject/

Can I bring others?

We know it can be a bit daunting performing in front of others and so we encourage people to come with a musical partner. Duo's are prefered given the size of our lounge room however we would ask that you both register so we can keep track of numbers.

Why are the sessions held in your lounge room?

We love filling our house with live music and wanted to open our space up to the community. As the project continues to grow, we envisage other musicians hosting their own sessions in their homes or at other venues. For more information about hosting, visit our website: https://www.communitymusicproject.net/

What can I bring into the event?

All you need to bring is yourself and your instrument/voice. We'll get in touch with you 1 week before the event with some further detils and to confirm your attendence.

What musical facilities are available?

We have a Yamaha Electronic Piano, stereo speakers with 3.5mm output jack (if you would like to play with a backing-track), height adjustable chair and music stand for you to use.

Do I have to pay?

The event is free. We like to provide some wine and cheese to share at the end of each session. We would appreciate if you bought a plate or beverage to share.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Our place is a short walk from Stanmore Station, or alternativley you can catch the 428 bus which will drop you at the corner of our street. There is usually on-street parking available around us too. We will send you our street address around 1 week prior to each session.
