Saturday’s in term time: 3:30pm-5:30pm
Who is this for?
Aimed at anyone in senior school, up to 18 years old, who writes or wants to learn to write songs. Whether you’re a singer who wants to broaden your horizons or a musician who wants to learn the skills to get your music heard – come see us on a Saturday afternoon.
- Learn song composition: how to build on basic chords
- Lyric writing: learn creative ways to tell your story, how to find inspiration and tips and tricks on how to finish writing the song.
- Musicianship: brush up on your theory, playing skills, learn a new instrument, play with other musicians.
- Technical skills: learn how to maximise use of programmes such as Garage Band, how to put together demos and record
- Improve performance: work with established performers to understand more about how to perform in front of an audience.
- The Music Business: understand more about the business side of Music: how to promote yourself and to manage releasing your music.
- Performance opportunities. These take place throughout the year in both small intimate and medium sized, theatre style venues, providing the opportunity to road test some of the newly acquired performance skills in front of a truly inclusive and supportive crowd (not compulsory)
