Welcome to the latest edition of Purcell’s Weekly Highlights!

New First Study Department

We were thrilled to share this week the news that Purcell has launched a new first study Commercial and Popular Music Department, which will be available to students from September 2022.

The department, led by Simon Allen and a tutor team of renowned industry professionals, will provide specialist music education to gifted young musicians talented in pop, rock and commercial music styles. The department’s inclusion will broaden students’ musical experience, expand artistic and creative output, and fulfil a core mission of widening participation.
