Open Academy, our community and participation department, works with around 6,000 people beyond our enrolled students and staff each year.

We work closely with our artistic and community partners on projects that include workshops with children and young people in mainstream schools and SEND (special educational needs and disability) settings, disabled people, those receiving treatment in hospitals, residents and staff of care homes, and people attending day centres.

Through Open Academy you will not only develop your musicianship, skills and confidence, but also make connections with people from all walks of life and reflect upon the contribution you can make to society through your artistry.
