Go Think Big: Making Music During Lockdown 

A 4 part series covering various aspects of ‘making music’; From music production to lyric writing. This series will allow you to meet like-minded creatives whilst getting an insight into how to make music right from your bedroom, right on your phone. We want you to be immersed in all the sessions, we understand that being an artist is about perfecting your craft but it’s also about knowing what goes in and out of the studio. That is why we are encouraging you to attend all 3 sessions before the ‘Demo Experience’.

We are ending the series with ‘The Demo Experience’ where you will perform or showcase any projects you have been working on whilst using the skills you have learnt during the sessions!

What are we going to cover over the next few weeks:

  1. Music Production – March 10th
  2. Songwriting: The basics – March 17th
  3. Vocal training – March 27th
  4. The Demo Experience – March 31st

These sessions will be interactive where you will be able to share and learn with others in the group. If you don’t have any musical experience but you have always wanted to learn more than we encourage you to join!

Joining these sessions will make your CV really stand out, showing that during the pandemic (whilst possibly looking for employment) you were able to use your time wisely and further your education using your own initiative!

These sessions will be run by two musicians:
