Create Music Launches Summer School this July
19 Apr 2022
With the previous restrictions imposed on group gathering lifted, Create Music have announced that this year’s Summer School will return in-person this July, allowing group music-making to take place at various venues across Brighton & Hove and East Sussex.
Courses run from 4–22 July, providing opportunities for pupils from school years 2 to 11 to learn a wide range of instruments and musical practices. These include singing, guitar, violin, keyboard, composing and GarageBand, as well as many more instruments belonging to the wind, brass and string family. The summer school caters for various levels of ability, with several courses tailored to first time learners, as well as more experienced performers who can play as part of a group or larger ensemble.
All courses run from 9.30am to 3.30pm and build towards an informal celebration performance for family and friends, which takes place either at 3.30pm on the final day or early evening.
Peter Chivers, Director for Create Music, said: “All Summer School courses are delivered by our team of experienced and friendly music teachers, providing a fun and engaging music experience where all young musicians are supported and encouraged as they work towards a celebration performance. We can’t wait to welcome pupils back to courses this July and we look forward to seeing you soon!”
One former Summer School pupil said: “It’s really good and if you are unsure about learning something, it will help you know more about it and encourage you to join in.”
Courses take place at Attenborough Centre for Creative Arts in Falmer, East Sussex College and St Andrew’s Prep in Eastbourne, Performing Arts Centre in Lewes and Sound Rooms in Brighton.
Fees start at £33 for one-day courses. Students already learning with Create Music will receive an automatic 10% discount. For more information visit createmusic.org.uk/summer-school.
