‘Play Your Heart Out’ at Create Music’s Summer School this July

3 March 2023

Create Music’s summer school returns from 3 to 21 July this year, offering 36 short courses for 6- to 18-year-olds at all stages of their musical journey. 

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

The Music Summer School courses are delivered by Create Music’s team of experienced and friendly music teachers and supervisors. Topics include instrument specific workshops, full ensemble playing, rock and pop and dedicated composition courses. Students with no prior musical experience can also join in and try something new, with classes for beginners such as ukelele, singing, samba band and debut music production. Each course will end with a performance celebrating the students’ newly honed musical skills.

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!”

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 available for families in receipt of certain income-related benefits. 

Create Music is managed by Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival, as part of the organisation’s remit to remove barriers to cultural experiences across age, ability and communities. From April, new Create Music memberships will be available priced from £35 per year, supporting the music education hub to provide access to lessons, collaborations with professional musicians and touring opportunities for students in return for benefits including early booking access for events and involvement with Create Music supporter networks.
