Calling all young people with dreams of rock stardom.

Brent Music Service (BMS) is setting up a new band offering young musicians the chance to perform at SSE Arena, Wembley in 2020 and work with top professional performers.

All Year 7 – Year 12 talented singers, drummers, guitarists, bass and keyboard players who live or attend school in Brent can apply.

The band will work with BMS tutors and will perform at the Brent Makes Music event next year.
