Musical workshops for young musicians take place at Claygate Village Hall from the end of next month.

The Realistic Music Academy will cater for budding rock stars under the age of 13 into the summer months, starting on April 30.

The academy caters for aspiring guitarists and drummers with little or no experience through to intermediate levels.

Students take part in classes learning new skills and their favourite songs which they play live in a band and perform at a showcase for friends and family.

Robin Henderson, founder of Realistic Music Academy, said: “We are holding a couple of open days at our Epsom headquarters in East Street, Epsom, on Saturday, March 29, and Saturday, April 26, where budding rock stars from the Claygate and Esher area are invited to take part in a free taster session.

“This is a great way to come and see what we do and find out more.”
