Welcome to the

Ladywood Community School of music



Founded by: Andy Hamilton, MBE MA Fellow of the Birmingham Conservatoire; 1918 - 2012


violinviolin!! THE DRUM CLASS IS BACK !!

The Drum class at themusic School will re-open after Half Term on Thursday 6th November 2014 under the tutelage of Romarna Campbell. Romarna started playing drums for the Notebenders Big Band around a decade ago as a bit of a child prodigy and is currently enrolled on the excellent Jazz course at the Birmingham Conservatoire.

Having come through the Notebenders, the appointment of Romarna continues the Andy Hamilton legacy, and we hope she will go on to be an inspiration to all our students.

She replaces Wayne Scott, whose work as a full time pro was taking him away from the school for increasingly extended periods.
