Alongside the weekly instrumental tuition, the academy runs a regular programme of inspirational Projects and Events, some directed specifically at students having tuition at the academy, others are open island-wide. We frequently work in partnership with other local organisations, and are proud to have developed some very exciting links with music schools in the UK and further abroad. All news from recent Projects and Events is also on our Facebook page (‘like’ us to receive reviews and photos from time to time).
