Brighton & Hove Music & Arts (BHMA) is part of  Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival and provides high quality and inclusive music and arts education and performance opportunities for all children and young people across the city including music lessons, ensembles, projects, workshops, orchestras and summer schools. BHMA is the lead partner of the award winning SoundCity, the Music Education Hub for Brighton & Hove. We work in partnership with a diverse range of organisations that include Glyndebourne, AudioActive, University of Sussex, Royal Pavilion and Museums and representatives from Public Health and the Music Industry.



Our vision is for all children and young people in the city, whatever their background, to be able to engage with, to enjoy, and to be inspired by high quality music and arts opportunities.


Music has the potential to transform lives. Whether it is through the enjoyment of mastering instrumental and vocal skills, the excitement of developing creative ideas, the experience of seeing and hearing world class musicians or the thrill of actually performing, getting involved in music can be a truly fulfilling and lifelong experience.
