Get creative with your instrument, music tech or singing skills!

Learn how to write songs and lyrics, arrange and record your creative ideas and produce and mix your work.

This is an active and practical class where participants will be busy creating, collaborating and playing throughout the session.

Artist Studio is led by Simon Maddison, a BBC 6 Music playlisted singer/songwriter who writes and performs  music as Silent Cities.

If you have a computer or device and would like to use it then activities can involve music software tools such as a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) (eg the free online DAW Bandlab, or your own DAW if you already use one).

This course is for those of any ability, including beginners, those learning an instrument or singing, and those who are already making up music on their own, whether using a device/computer or not.
