CYMT expands Music Production & Percussion

CYMT expands its Music Production & Percussion Department from the summer term 2018, following on from the Centre’s 4th birthday celebrations in March 2018.

The creative music production course, teaching students how to create music with the application Logic Pro X in a Mac suite, is open to all secondary age students (11+) in the South West. Any genre of music and no prior experience of music production is necessary. Students can attend just for music production – a standalone course at 10.45-11.45 on Saturdays in term time at Richard Huish College, Taunton – or tie into other workshops available at CYMT.

The Centre will also be developing its percussion department with the arrival of Mr Sam Felton to teach drum kit, orchestral percussion from April 2018 onwards.  Sam will start a percussion group and expressions of interest for tuition with Sam should be sent to taunton@cym.org.uk.
