Thursday after-school sessions 2017-8

New writing takes place in all our regular sessions and projects – see examples from Big Sing at the Big Screen events, B Jamba and Jazz sessions.

We are also developing new ways for people to develop their composition skills:


This group first formed to write music for our new Gamelan and performed the new compositions at Morecambe Kite Festival in June 2016.

Since then, individuals from the group have been writing, getting commissions and having their works performed – details to come soon – and we are hoping to work together on another writing project soon.

Please get in touch if you would like more information – either to engage us for projects, commissions or to join us. Jilly 07766057315


The new series of sessions will be on Thursdays 5.30 – 7pm at BlueJam Artspace, Mostyn Hall, Friargate, Penrith CA11 7XR

Anyone Year 4 and upwards who wants to get together with other young musicians to write their own music is welcome to come along – if you want to find out more, ring Jilly on 07766057315

£4 per session

Beginners welcome – this is a relaxed session where you can gain confidence in playing, singing and having a go at writing stuff, and make new friends.
