Newbury’s mission to maintain children’s music-making throughout the summer vacation

If your child is craving something musical and creative this summer, look no further, Hogan Music, the lead provider for contemporary music making in the area, has a packed schedule of workshops and courses on offer.

Taking place at its center on Bartholomew Street, Hogan Music’s summer workshop weeks consist of inspiring instrumental workshop sessions on keyboard, drums, ukulele, guitar, a session to discover the art of songwriting as well as its Band Jam courses.

It has also teamed up with the Corn Exchange to give 16 children a behind the scenes experience in their theater as well as Ragtime Theater School which will be offering children the opportunity to have loads of fun learning songs and moves from Disney favorites Encanto and Moana.

“There is huge excitement among the team as we prepare for our summer workshops in just a few weeks,” says Hogan head of partnerships and development Sam Wyne. “We’ve been overwhelmed by their popularity having just scheduled more dates to cope with the demand.
