Seeking Teen Musicians (Zurich area)

Our 15 year old son has been playing guitar for a year or two. He's doing fairly well (learning from YouTube videos), but we think he would benefit from playing with other musicians of a similar age (and level).

He mostly plays acoustic guitar (finger-style) but he also plays his electric guitar occasionally... no particular genre of music (all sorts).

We're living on the West side of Zurich, but we'd be interested in hearing from any teenagers in the Zurich area (he speaks English, French and some German and Italian).

Re: Seeking Teen Musicians (Zurich area)

Thanks for the welcome.

Maybe responding to my own post might prompt someone (who might have missed it) to reply to the question I asked?

Re: Seeking Teen Musicians (Zurich area)

Hi, we live in Reinach (near Basel) and have a very active music school here. Throughout their school life my kids went to music classes and also participated in bands, given concerts. I would think that there could be something similar in your area, maybe you could get in touch with music schools and your Gemeinde and find out?

Re: Seeking Teen Musicians (Zurich area)

Thanks for the information Leonie.

I spent hours trying to research such things and sent at least half a dozen emails to various people. I did not receive a single reply, despite emailing some people twice.

Maybe I'll try again when I have time.

I have sent you PM with a contact that hopefully could help.

Good luck!

Re: Seeking Teen Musicians (Zurich area)

There is a centre for young people in Zurich, called Dynamo.
www.dynamo.ch

Since it has all sorts of rooms available to hire, sometimes bands practice there.

Although the following page is for a past event, perhaps these are the people to contact and ask what's currently being run, and how your son could join in.

Have you come across this list, yet?

You can scroll down to "Rock/Pop Bands" or to "Guitarre" and see the direct contact details.
