Calling Young Composers! On Sunday 19th November 10am-6pm, Birmingham Contemporary Music Group’s Creative Composing Lab (CCL) are running workshops for young people in school years 10-13.

Held at CBSO Centre in Birmingham, this term’s workshop is themed around composing for voice, and students will compose music for a trio of voice, flute and harp. The workshop might be useful for students studying GCSE, BTEC or A-level music, but is open to anyone who loves creating new music, although participants would need some notation skills. The workshops are FREE and are a fantastic opportunity for young people to get support in creating their own music and meeting like-minded young musicians.

If your child learns an instrument, the next step is to learn how to play with others. If they are a budding rockstar, we have Rock and Pop groups for primary and secondary aged children at Music School on Wednesdays. We also have New Strings, our intermediate string group, Guitar Ensemble rehearsals and a Music Production course. Come along in September to find out more.

We have FREE music groups for a range of instruments and ages. As soon as your child can read and play 5 notes on their instrument, there is a group for them to join. Tuesday rehearsals are for Fusion 5s (any instrument), Keyboard Ensemble, Youth Choir and our Inclusive Music sessions led by Big Top SEND practitioners. Come along and see what all the noise is about!


We’ll they’ve done it! Ted and Denise Pearson rode over 900 miles from John O’ Groats to Land’s End all for children in Wolverhampton.

September is a good time for your child to come and try our music groups. If they have an instrument, they would be really welcome to join. And there’s plenty to choose from. Monday night is New Wind and Concert Wind Band (both woodwind and brass) plus Jazz Big Band (sax, brass, piano, guitar and bass).

We are so proud of Allie Parsons, the winner of Wolverhampton Young Citizen of the year! Allie is an amazing violinist and a youth board member on our music hub advisory board. Her leadership and commitment qualities are an inspiration to everyone. From all of us at the Music Service, congratulations! 👏👏👏👏👏


Our teachers are at the Music School this week for training and getting ready to go back into schools next week. We're looking forward to starting back with our 15 bands and ensembles next week (from 11th September).


Less than two weeks to go before we begin our ride. We are as ready as we can be. We have collected or have pledges for around £500 at the moment. I think that may rise as the days go by, but if not that is fine as well. We have overcome some difficulties along the way, a lack of accommodation in Scotland meant a change of route, finding a carrier to take our tandem to JOG, major dental work for me and several months of route planning. We leave John O'Groats on 1st September, arriving home for one night on the 9th, then a further 5 days should see us at Land's End. At least that is the plan.
