ANIMATE LOCAL ACCESS COURSES
Our next Animate local access courses will be taking place during the Easter holiday for Southwark and Lambeth, and during May half term for Greenwich and Lewisham. Over the 2 day course, you will work alongside a team of highly skilled tutors to create new music. There will be lots of opportunity for you to share your ideas and have input into how the final piece will sound. Please scroll down to find out what you can expect on a typical Animate Course.
