If you’re living, working or studying in South London (aged 16-25 years) and interested in working in the music industry then EMERGE is for you!
Following the success of our taster course in March, World Heart Beat is offering a FREE eight-week course for 15-25 year olds every Wednesday (evenings) and Saturdays (daytime) from 12 July to 3 September 2022.
EMERGE offers the opportunity to develop a sustainable career in music by offering training in production, working as an independent artist and producer, building community, and gaining insights into UK music roles, along with paid work experience, mentoring and apprenticeships.
The sessions will be split into four key areas:
Your Voice, Your Community
This strand explores how communities are nurtured and shaped by musicians and creators. From the way artists and collectives build their communities using their gigs and social media, to the running of larger campaigns and initiatives, this strand will feature creative leaders sharing their stories about how and why they created their community; the gaps it filled; and the difference it’s made.
Making and producing quality music without expensive software and equipment. This hands-on strand will cover everything from track breakdowns to studio visits to sessions demonstrating specific techniques and showcasing artists pushing the boundaries in mixing, mastering, beat-making, and engineering.
In My Shoes
An in-depth look at the UK music scene as well as the opportunities and roles that exist. In My Shoes features honest, from inspirational talks music professionals at different stages of their careers and an off-site visit to give you a holistic picture of what the life of a creative is like.
This strand examines what it takes to be an independent creator from the perspective of music artists and those who support them. In today’s music industry, we want to highlight those who operate independently and spark conversations about the workload, lifestyle, and experiences of an independent creative.
Where: World Heart Beat, Kimber Road
When: Wednesday (5pm) and Saturdays (11-2pm), from 12 July
