In the mix
Young people with a love of music can be “in the mix” thanks to a five day long free workshop which has been funded by the Big Lottery.
The music production project, In the Mix, is free to anyone between 10 and 18 years, and will enable those taking part to create their own songs using various software programmes.
Organised by the Barton upon Humber based charity, ST-ART, those taking part will learn how to structure a song and about musical arrangements.
“Once songs are complete, the young people will learn how to mix down their tracks and export their songs into a format which will be made into their own personal audio CD,” said ST-ART project worker, Janine Knight.
“No experience is needed, you don’t even need to play an instrument – all you need is a love of music,” Janine continued. “The only stipulation is that those taking part must attend all five sessions.”
The project takes place between Monday, April 11 and Friday April 15, between 10am and 3pm, at Ropery Hall at The Ropewalk in Barton.
The following Thursday, April 21, at 1pm there will be a showcase event for friends and family at Ropery Hall which will also include a performance by young people working with Duck Egg Theatre as well as the first airing of the music track.
