Event Description

The BKA’s Summer School returns for 2019, featuring a week of intense fun and learning with teaching from some of the finest minds in music education.

At the 37th International Summer school you will be exposed to a wide range of musical styles, develop musicianship and work with like-minded people who take music and having fun very seriously.

Further information will be published shortly.

‘Already, I have started embedding these new ways of thinking with my new class of 10 – to 16-year-old musicianship students, who, after just one month of teaching, have already told me how much easier and FUN their musicianship class is… Magic!’ – Laura McFall, musicianship teacher and classical singer, Northern Ireland

‘It’s difficult to find the words to describe the BKA Summer School experience to somebody who hasn’t seen it for themselves. So rather than spouting superlatives, perhaps the biggest testimony I can give is that when I had to go home, I sobbed and gulped like a baby who had had all of his favourite dinosaur toys taken away.’ – Jimmy Rotheram

Cassie Kinoshi is an award-winning composer, music educator and band leader of the Seed Ensemble. She plays with Nerija and Kokoroko.

Pete Yelding is a cellist, sitarist and academic who has written extensively on colonialism and music place-making.


Following feedback from our landmark session at our Social Justice conference last year, Beyond Diversity, we are pleased to offer a one-day programme aimed at helping organisations and practitioners move beyond limiting models of diversity in relation to race and class.

This exciting session will take a multidisciplinary approach using music, interactive activities and frameworks to provide an open environment where we can collectively move towards a proactive, critically engaged sector.

The day will explore:

  • structural racism, power and privilege within the arts
  • how whiteness shapes music education, the wider cultural sector and the cultures within the cultural sector
  • strategies to create inclusive, socially just ways of building programmes and curriculums

Who the day is for:

  • staff at arts organisations and music education hubs
  • arts practitioners
  • educators
  • policy-makers

If you are a person of colour, this training day might help you find the language you need to address issues around race within your organisation, with practitioners on hand to offer you support throughout the day. We know that the emotional and intellectual labour of combatting racism falls on people of colour with little support and we will strive not to replicate that dynamic in this space.
