Poster for the CMEH Virtual Songwriting Club

To help young people to get started or take their songwriting to the next level, we have set up an online virtual songwriting club which meets on Thursday afternoons.  These sessions, for young people aged 12 -18 in Cornwall or the Isles of Scilly, offer an opportunity to test out new ideas and to work with other young songwriters.  The sessions are fully funded by the the Hub so there is no cost for participants.  

All participants must register to join the Songwriting Club by completing an online workshop application and consent form

We also offer Songwriting workshops during term time and school holidays.  Dates for future workshops to be confirmed and will be listed on our Workshops and Masterclasses page.  These workshops may be delivered online due to COVID-19 restrictions
