Online music workshops for 13-19’s with Brighter Sound

Aimed at young musicians interested in developing their skills, exploring new ways to make music, and/or looking at music as part of their future career. Sessions will be led by a range of inspiring guest artists including MC Strategy, producer Breezewax, RnB singer-songwriter Mali Hayes and electro-pop artist Natalie McCool.

Between 16 Nov-9 Dec, Brighter Sound will be running two free weekly workshops focusing on the different elements of being a musician. On Monday nights we’ll focus on the practical things you need to know and on Wednesday nights we’ll explore exciting new approaches to making music. Depending on your interests, you’re welcome to come to just one workshop, a selection of them, or the whole series.

Until we’re able to meet safely in person, we hope these workshops help you to stay connected to your love of music, your ambitions for the future, and each other.

Participants will need access to a laptop, tablet or phone and internet access, and will need to register in advance of each workshop – please click the links below to find out more.
