At South West Music School, we have five programmes to suit the needs, abilities and interests of all of our students. The Foundation, Enhanced Foundation, Performance Development and Core programmes are for instrumentalists and vocalists, whilst budding composers might be interested in joining our Composer programme.

Our programmes are inclusive, open to all regardless of musical or personal background. We are also musically inclusive – designed to identify and nurture exceptional talent in performance and composing in any musical style. The audition process is designed to determine the best fit of programme for the student.

In addition to our programme of activities, students at South West Music School can receive 1-2-1 mentoring local to their homes as a part of their individually tailored package of support. Students of SWMS can also benefit from a number of other music-making opportunities – check out our ‘other opportunities’ page below for further info.
