Sound and Music Summer School 2021

Girl composing music

Make sure you don’t miss the opportunity to apply for this year’s Sound and Music Summer School! 

Held at the Purcell School in Watford, this unique, week-long residential gives students the opportunity to explore and develop their musical creativity. Whether they’re into song-writing or jazz, film music or classical, this is their chance to take things to the next level.  

Full of collaboration, fun, learning and creativity, 75 young composers aged 14 - 18 will work with professional composers and musicians from a wide variety of musical traditions:

  • Explore different styles and approaches to composing and music-making 
  • Meet and work with leading composers and musicians 
  • Create their own piece of music 
  • Have their music performed and recorded by professional musicians 
  • Meet lots of other young composers 

“It’s literally the best thing I’ve ever done”  

Applications are now open: Deadline noon Monday 6 April  

This year's Summer School will run from Sunday 1st - Saturday 7th August.  We hope that it will be residential, but our Plan B is to hold the week online, if Covid-19 is still restricting our lives. 

There is more information about the week and how to apply on our website.
