SUMMER SCHOOLS

What we do:
We run a set of workshops that can be stand-alone or part of a bigger summer school programme. We arrive with laptops, keyboards etc and run a set of interactive sessions 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.

Structure:
Generally we run our summer schools in two phases. In the first phase participants get to pick up the skills, in the second they’re working on their own track and preparing for performance. There’s flexibility in course structure so we can suit your timetable & budget. E.g. the course can be run over 4 or 5 days, with 2-5 hours tuition per day.

Outcomes:
All our summer courses are geared toward an end goal, e.g. finished tracks & a public performance. Participants come away with their own published MP3 of their work. Students can ‘live mix’ and trigger their compositions using MIDI controllers to whatever degree of difficulty suits their level of confidence.

Student Benefits:
Aside from having good fun along the way, students benefit from gaining creative confidence and equipping themselves with music technology know-how for creating further music. There’s also lots of angles for personal development such as performing individual creations in front of others.

FAQs

Location Requirements?
A room with tables & chairs and a couple of plug sockets, we bring everything else.

Participant Requirments?
The activity tends to best suit teens+ as some concentration is needed. No technical experience needed, we start from scratch. If the group is musical or interested in music they will get more out of it, but musical proficiency not essential.

No. of Students?
The ideal size is 5-8 students with a max size of 10-12. For bigger groups we can add an extra tutor and/or split the group.
