Starfish Youth Music is a music club for young people 10 -18 years old, based in Lewes, East Sussex. Since 1998 it has provided a fun and safe space for young people, helping them meet other like minded musicians, form bands, jam, write songs, play gigs and record their music. We are firm believers in creativity and personal expression through music. Our experience over the years has shown us that whatever their musical level, every young musician has the ability to express themselves and gain fulfillment by creating their own original music.
