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

Over the past 6 months we have been converting one of our old barns into a new space for everyone that visits Coda.
There is no need to sit in the car park on cold dark nights anymore! Come inside and see what's going on.
As a place to wait and meet The Coda Social is open all day and evening so please use the comfy chairs, games, and free wifi (any day now!) whenever you are at Coda.
At our busiest times, usually between 3pm and 6.30pm Monday to Thursday our new café will be open in the new space. Serving delicious real coffee and a wide range of teas, plus scrumptious snacks and nibbles, we hope the cafe will become a vibrant hub of activity and, if demand grows we will be open more often.
Please come and check us out, ask about a loyalty card and use the suggestion hat to tell us what you want from The Coda Social.
The old school tuck shop with honesty tin will still be available for kids treats and drinks at all times (find it by the counter in the Coda Social).
