We were thrilled with the response to our Winter Holiday Activities we ran between December 18-21 at venues in Bognor Regis, Crawley, Littlehampton, and Worthing.
Almost 200 attendees aged between eight and 16 took part in the workshops, which included the opportunity to learn how to write and perform rap and music lyrics, the opportunity to perform in a band, and DJ and Music Production.
At Bognor Regis and Littlehampton, there were sessions in Rap and Lyric Writing led by Louie Levack, rap practitioner and established performer. He incorporated performance and lyrics into the workshops.
In Crawley, young people were able to take part in Music Production workshops, giving them the opportunity to learn new skills including songwriting, delivered by our hub partners Education & Bass.
Over in Worthing, youngsters with a passion for playing guitar, bass, drums, keyboard/piano or singing took part in our brand new four-day workshop to learn how to build a band.
James Underwood, Chief Executive of West Sussex Music, said:
“We’ve been thrilled by the number of children and young people who have joined us to make music over the winter holidays. So many have come with an interest but not necessarily a lot of experience, and they’ve left with knowledge and confidence.
“For the more experienced and confident musicians, this was an excellent opportunity to hone their skills – before joining some of our other projects.”
Holiday activities will be taking place again in April, see here for further details.
