Every year, MusicRadar partners up with the good folks at BIMM for the MusicRadar Summer Schools, courses designed to help musicians develop their technique and confidence as performers.

This year, the courses are taking place in Brighton (29 July - 2 August) and Bristol (5-9 August), and consist of five days where you'll experience dedicated tuition on your instrument every day, with live performance workshops and special guests galore.

Over the duration of the course, you'll learn tracks by the likes of The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Foo Fighters and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and recieve tuition from BIMM tutors including Damon Minchella (Ocean Colour Scene, Paul Weller, The Who), Kieron Pepper (The Prodigy), Martin Wright (Slash/Ronnie Wood) and Elliot May (Basement Jaxx).

Special guests confirmed for the Summer School weeks so far include Kasabian drummer Ian Matthews and Republica lead singer Saffron.
