Summer School 2015
Summer School 2015 will run for 6 weeks, from 29 June to 7 August and will include instrumental, vocal and music technology courses for pupils from year 2 to year 11.
Summer School courses are led by our team of specialist teachers and are delivered in a friendly and informal atmosphere. Every course builds towards a celebration performance and is a great way to end the academic year!
Exciting programmes are offered for children and young people who enjoy music making, but who may have no prior experience, through to more advanced musicians and singers who may have been learning for a number of years. Each course is designed and delivered by experienced music leaders, taking into account the age and stage of participants.
Highlights of the 2015 schedule include the always popular fun days for younger learners; vocal, guitar, keyboard and drum kit workshops; large ensembles (Violin & Cello Group, Summer Wind Band); and music technology courses combining Garageband and digital/stop motion animation.
New courses for this year include opportunities to work towards the Arts Award ‘Discover’ and ‘Explore’ and two courses that run over 5 days – Music Theatre Week and Band Week. During these new week-long courses that take place during the summer holiday, pupils in years 5 to 8 will have the chance to create a music theatre performance from scratch to stage in just 5 days or to form new rock and pop bands that will work towards their first gig in just one week.
Course fees begin from £30 per day and subsidies are available for children and young people from families on low incomes who attend Brighton & Hove local authority schools or academies.
More details about all courses at Summer School 2015 and information about how to apply will be available week commencing 13 April via the BHMA website www.bhma.org.uk
