WaterBear | The College of Music are excited to announce the launch of The WaterBear Songwriting Factory 2021.

This coming 22nd and 23rd July, WaterBear will be holding a 2 day songwriting camp in the heart of Brighton at our seafront venue and studio facilities.

In addition, you will be performing your original material with a live house band, MD’d by Dale Davis (Amy Winehouse), in front of an audience at the end of the 2 days. Not only is this available for musicians at WaterBear, but The WaterBear Songwriting Factory will have 2 special slots reserved for anyone who doesn’t currently study with WaterBear.
