James Underwood, chief executive of West Sussex Music, said: “Whether you’ve got advanced skills or just want to give it a try, there is something for everyone. At Bognor Regis and Littlehampton, West Sussex Music will be offering rap and lyric writing workshops run by Louie Levack, rap practitioner and established performer, who will be incorporating performance and lyrics into the workshops. In Crawley, attendees will be able to take part in DJ and music production workshops, giving them the opportunity to learn new skills, delivered by our hub partners Education & Bass. Over in Worthing, for youngsters with a passion for playing guitar, bass, drums, keyboard/piano or singing, this workshop is for them. In a brand-new four-day workshop, designed for students that have already started learning the basics in lessons, there will be opportunities to learn how to build a band. Open to eight to 16- year-olds, all skill levels are welcome, and equipment is provided.”

James added: “Music comes in so many different styles and genres, which is why we’re so thrilled to be able to provide these sessions for children and young people in areas we know are of huge interest to many of them. Having the opportunity to build a band, learn how to rap or create music through DJ-ing is so exciting, and many of our attendees return to learn more from our incredible music professionals. Last year we filled 225 spaces on our courses with young people who wanted to have fun making music, making friends and making memories.”
