Join Kent’s only creative composition ensemble this Easter holidays to create brand new music with like-minded musicians from across the county!

This April you’ll marvel at the majesty of Mother Nature and make brand new compositions inspired by our theme – The Natural World.

You’ll work with supportive and professional tutors and other members of the ensemble to create original music from your own interests, styles and instrumentation.

You’ll perform your masterpiece for friends and family in the auditorium of the beautiful Maidstone Grammar School on the final day of the four-day course!

The concert for friends and family will start at 6pm on April 14th.

Don’t miss your chance for a unique musical experience this Easter – join the O1 ensemble today.

We welcome all musicians ages 11-18 who play any instrument or sing in any genre to join the ensemble.

We ask that beginners can play at least three notes or three chords, but there is no restriction on instruments or preferred genres. If you’re a vocalist, no prior experience is required!

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a classical harpist, a ska trumpeter, a spoken word poet, beatboxer, DJ, folk guitarist or something else entirely – you’re all welcome to add your special touch to the ensemble!

Every O1 project offers brand new experiences, and you don’t need to have taken part before to have a brilliant experience with the ensemble.

Wherever possible, participants will need to bring their own instruments along to the project, including amplifiers, leads and stands. Do let us know if you haven’t got your own supplies – we may be able to help out. Please get in touch by emailing musiccentres@kent-music.com if this is the case.

One of the best parts of an O1 course is getting to work closely with specialist tutors and music leads throughout the course. Meet your Project 29 tutors below!

Joe Browne – Musical Director
Alex Ribchester – Percussion
Kate Harwood – Keys
Alice Phelps – Strings
Pip Bowers – Guitars
Simon Clarke – Wind
Daniel Moulton – Vocals
