COURSES & WORKSHOPS
Electronic music is a fantastic ‘hook’ for engaging young people and our outreach programmes have been growing in popularity across the country over the years.
Music making tends to have universal appeal and we work across a broad spectrum – youth centres, community groups, disadvantaged and marginalised communities, cross border projects, etc.
Our music production workshops are fun, but also offer a great mechanism for personal development, creative expression and confidence building.
What we do:
We arrive with laptops, keyboards etc and run a set of regular classes with your group. Participants learn the basics and get to make their own music (e.g. Hip Hop, Dance) using the latest software and hardware.
Courses can be run over a number of weeks, e.g. one 2-3 hour session a week for 4-8 weeks, or can be bunched together, e.g. a summer camp for 4-5 days. The content can be tuned to suit the skill level and needs of the group.
All our workshops are geared toward an end goal. This can include a finished set of tracks or else a public performance. Participants come away with their own CD or published MP3 of their work
We charge a flat rate per hour so you can scale activity up or down to suit your budget. We regularly partner with charities & outreach groups to fund or part-fund programmes.

PERFORMANCE & EVENTS
Students can perform their music with the aid of mixers and controllers, combined with live vocals and instrumentation if they’re up for it. Or else backing music made by students can be used at a community gathering or event. Our workshops regularly finish with a public performance.
There is a lot of flexibility in how we deliver our workshops and the content we use. For example students can use audio samples and their own recordings to make music to a theme. In this way, our music-making courses can tie in with other community themes and events – putting a nice focus on workshop sessions.
This is a short, low-cost way to see the set up and test what the appetite is like for this activity with your group. We arrive with all our equipment including laptops, keyboards, and controllers for a half-day (e.g. 3 hours) and run a workshop where students get to have a go, pick up some basic skills and come away with their own MP3.
