Our NEW Friday night Film Club features new and classic films with music at their heart. Our monthly programme starts on 24th October at 6pm with Christopher Guest's mockumentary on folk music A Mighty Wind "subtle, hilarious, excruciating and affecting in equal measure".

The Summer Rock & Pop Academy is drawing near but there is still time to book for this years 5 day intensive programme for teenagers.
Coda's Academy runs from Monday 28th July to Friday 1st August and is aimed at young players keen to develop their musical skills and join others to work as a band. This year our outstanding team of tutors and mentors include Bob Burke, singer, producer and Senior Lecturer in Pop Music at Solent Uni; Chris Hopgood, our all-round guitar expert and our special guest Paul Statham.
Paul is a currently a songwriter and producer with Warner Chappell whose recent collaborations have included megastars like Kylie Minogue. Even Paul's first band B-Movie reached national and international success – releasing three singles and four albums followed by a tour of the US and Europe and in 1999 he co-wrote ‘Here With Me’ and ‘I’m No Angel’ with then unsigned singer Dido. ‘Here With Me’ went on to become a world-wide hit and the album ‘No Angel’ sold 16 million copies.
We are delighted to bring Paul to Coda alongside the rest of the team so don't miss out on your chance to work with the best in the British music industry.
The Summer Rock & Pop Academy for 11 to 17 year olds costs £200
