At The Music Works we believe that we should inspire and encourage our young musicians to compose and perform music. It is a part of the philosophy of the Yamaha Music Schools that not only instrument-playing and the music theory is taught, but also that the children are given an opportunity to express their thoughts and emotions through music, thereby developing their creative abilities. Open to young musicians of any standard and with expert judges giving constructive feedback this new competition is a great opportunity to perform live, have some creative fun and maybe even win a prize! We have teamed up with the Haslemere Fringe Festival who actively support the performing arts and original music in our community - This fabulous event in July for all the family attracts over 10,000 visitors over 3 days - With some amazing acts just announced our winners will have the opportunity to perform on a professional festival stage!
