Music Development Days
Young people's music workshops
Young people aged 13+ are being invited to take part in free music workshops in February half term to create and perform original new music for a large-scale community event.
The first workshops took place over the October half term. Instrumentalist, technologist and producer, Gareth Carbery ran a day-course on recording and producing. Gareth was then joined by BBC Folk Singer of the year, Ríoghnach Connolly for a day of working by ear, playing together and creating original music.
More workshops will take place in February half term, in the lead up to a live showcase of the work at a grand finale on Saturday 24th February.
The Buxton Our Street Youth Panel have worked with High Peak Community Arts to make the sessions a reality. Anyone wanting more information to sign up for the workshops should email email@example.com or find the sign up form on www.highpeakarts.org.
