Sophie Brewer South West Music School

musical excellence in the south west
South West Music School is a music charity working with talented young instrumentalists, singers and composers aged 8-18yrs in the South West.

Due to the geographical nature of the South West we are not building based but are a 'virtual' school working with young people on an individual basis in their local area.
Performing musicians

For singers and instrumentalists of any instrument or genre, the programme is in two parts.
Students start on the Feeder Scheme, a year-long programme consisting of 6 workshops in different venues across the South West.

The Feeder Scheme then ‘feeds’ into the Core Programme, the main instrumental and vocal part of South West Music School, consisting of mentoring, individual tuition and residential projects.

Performing musicians can audition to join South West Music School from age 8-16yrs and can stay on the programme until they are 18yrs old. Applications usually open in late January with a deadline in May and auditions in June. Successful students will spend the first year on the Feeder Scheme and then re-audition annually the following June to earn a place on the Core Programme.

Composers
South West Music School has formed a partnership with ‘Sound and Music’ to provide a package of specialist mentoring, individual tuition and residential projects for talented young composers. This training and education will be led and guided by composers from the professional music world who have a proven record of successful work in music training.
Composition students can apply to join South West Music School from age 13 - 17 years and can stay on the programme until they are 18yrs old. Applications usually open in late April with a deadline in June and interviews in July.

South West Music School (SWMS) is registered in England as a company limited by guarantee (Company No: 7307202) and a charity (Charity No: 1138482)
