DMA Music Centre

We are delighted to announce that the DMA Music Centre will be opening its doors again on Tuesday, 28 September.  Based at Goodwin Academy, Deal and meeting every Tuesday, term time the aim of the centre is to be a hub for creativity serving the local community.

In addition to the original Community and Beginners Bands, we have added new groups to include a brass and woodwind band for children, a Ukulele group and a Community Choir, both for all ages.

Summer Music Days

We regret to announce that the decision has been taken to cancel the Summer Music Days in August amidst growing Covid concerns. We hope to do something later in the year, if the virus allows, and will publicise this once it is confirmed.

Like the rest of the Arts sector our work has been severely curtailed by the Pandemic; however, we have used this time to plan for the future and to deliver digital cultural projects. One such project has involved recording performances for two of our education strands.

Top Brass players record performance for Primary schools
A quintet of exceptional brass players, all principals or leading members of our national orchestras, recently recorded for us at the Collyer Fergusson Hall, University of Kent. It was an absolute privilege to have them record a workshop and concert for our Bold As programme which can be streamed into classrooms.

Community Project
A new contemporary composition has been commissioned and musicians from our different education strands, including the Summer School and Music Centre, will come together to perform it in the autumn.

Unfortunately, due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, all live performances and events have had to be suspended until further notice.
