The Cambridge Music+ programme provides stimulating music sessions for Year 12 students who are interested in developing their knowledge of music beyond the A-level curriculum. In a series of six twilight extension classes delivered by experienced teachers and Cambridge academics, students will be encouraged to think beyond their current course of study, and will experience different perspectives on music – as science, culture, history and creative process. The sessions will run at two centres in Manchester and London, followed by a residential in March 2017 in Cambridge.

All sessions are completely FREE for participants, and associated travel costs will be reimbursed.
