Music is and always has been a huge part of Summerhill life. Many kids love expressing themselves through music in some form or another.
The Summerhill music events started in early 2000 and have been a regular thing ever since. Generally they happen every Summerhill end of term but kids organise them really anytime they get the urge. Sometimes they are blended with a party or theme, and sometimes arranged by a band, and sometimes just a mix of people, ability and ages doing a whole array of performances. There is never any expectation or criteria. Just a whole load of kids and adults having fun with music.
