We are sorry to announce that, due to the COVID 19 pandemic and the continuation of social distancing measures we have made the extremely difficult and very sad decision to cancel Kent Music Summer School at Benenden School this year including all County Group courses due to take place in July. 

 For answers to queries about refunds, as well as our organisational response to the COVID 19 pandemic, please visit our COVID 19 page here: https://www.kent-music.com/news/kent-music-and-covid-19-coronavirus/ 

 Please keep making music and we look forward to welcoming you to our activities in the future. 

Song Writing Course

Saturday 25 July – Monday 27 July 2020

This course provides the opportunity for participants to work individually and collaboratively to develop their songwriting skills under the guidance of songwriting experts.

The focus is on how contemporary and modern songs are structured and put together and what makes them successful. Support and advice will be given to help understand lyric writing and arrangement techniques; this will incorporate “live” instruments giving course members the freedom to experiment with different musical textures and voicings.

All of our staff who work with children and young people have a current enhanced disclosure through the Disclosure & Barring Service and we run a programme of regular child protection training for our teachers.

Free end of course performance for family and friends on Monday 27 July.

Age: 11 to 19 years old

Level: Open to all levels, no songwriting experience required

Fee: £192 – Financial assistance is available upon meeting criteria. Visit the Financial Assistance page for more information.
