Welcome to West Sussex Music

WED 23 OCT 2013

The arrival of West Sussex Music marks a new and exciting chapter in a county which has an unrivalled reputation and a long tradition in making music.

We will continue to build upon our enviable legacy with the advantage of being an independent charitable company whilst introducing new and exciting initiatives.

At the same time we will continue to ensure that every child in West Sussex has access to high quality music education. Our staff and tutors will still work with enthusiasm and dedication to meet the needs of all young musicians and the aims of the government’s National Plan for Music Education.

We will work closely with schools, parents and partner organisations to maintain a vibrant and varied programme throughout the county.

Alongside the high quality teaching from our talented staff we will seek to organise, throughout the year, a wide range of musical opportunities and events to suit all ability levels and tastes. Some of what we do will be familiar to you however some new initiatives will surprise and, I hope, please you.

Times of change can be challenging and I would like to express my appreciation to all of you who have joined West Sussex Music and the exciting musical journey we have to offer.

Thank you for showing an interest in being part of West Sussex Music.

We have a wonderful future of music-making ahead of us. Together we will change lives through music!

James Underwood,

Head of West Sussex Music
