Create Music’s Summer School Returns with Brand New Courses

21 Jun 2023

Taking place at venues across Brighton, Hove and East Sussex, Create Music’s Summer School returns from 3 to 21 July, offering 36 short courses for 6 to 18-year-olds at all stages of their musical journey. 

This year, Create Music is introducing two new courses, Debut Music Production and Music Production, to give students the opportunity to learn how to record, mix and produce in a professional environment. 

The Summer School courses are delivered by Create Music’s team of experienced and friendly music teachers and supervisors. The variety of topics on offer include instrument specific workshops, full ensemble playing and dedicated composition courses. Students with no prior musical experience can also join in with classes for complete beginners, including Let’s Play Ukelele and Let’s Sing. More experienced students can enjoy Composing and Scoring for Film or a Rock & Pop Workshop. Each course will end with a performance celebrating the students’ newly honed musical skills.

The courses are from 1 to 3 days long and priced between £33 and £99. Current Create Music students are entitled to a 10% discount on fees and bursaries of 50% are also available for families receiving certain income-related benefits. 

Create Music is one of the largest providers of music education in the UK, reaching over 18,500 children and young people across 262 participating schools and music centres in East Sussex.

Peter Chivers, Director of Create Music, said: 

“Following the success of last year’s Summer School, Create Music is pleased to present the 2023 programme. All Summer School courses provide a fun and engaging experience where all young musicians are supported and encouraged as they work towards their celebration performance. We can’t wait to welcome pupils back to courses this July for Summer School 2023!”

Create Music is managed by Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival and forms part of the organisation’s on-going commitment to remove barriers to arts and culture across age, ability and communities. From April 2024, new Create Music memberships will be available from just £35 per year. These memberships will support the music education hub in providing access to lessons, collaborations with professional musicians and touring opportunities for students, in return for benefits such as early booking event access and involvement with Create Music supporter networks.
