Are you a student in Southend? We want to hear what music you want to take part in.

We want to offer a range of music to Southend students. This is where we need your help.

We want you to share your stories of music. This can be music in school or out of school. We want to know what you do and don't like. We also want to know what else you would like offered. Post all your ideas and stories here.

We'll then use all the ideas and stories to help to shape what is offered over the next year. We'll keep you updated with ideas and new opportunities in the 'Updates' section. Be sure to check back.

At Music on Sea we provide musical opportunities to students in Southend (5 to 18 years old). Whether it’s instrument hire, lessons in school, out of school music clubs, performance opportunities or in-school workshops, we offer it.

    Have you watched the video of our Festival of Colour project?
    The Festival of Colour was a samba project run over the past term in 8 different Southend schools. Rhythm Connections ran two workshops in each school with a performance taking place at the end. These performances can be seen in the video along with feedback from schools involved. The project was supported by Youth Music.
