Perform, Write, Record...

Join us for three days of modern music tuition and performance at Amersham College this October half-term!  There will be beginner and intermediate/advanced classes to develop songwriting, performance and music production skills.

Day 1 & 2 - Songwriting and music technology.  Learn how to improve your songwriting skills, and acquire the expertise to sequence your music using a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) software.

Day 3 - Performance skills and live concert.  Develop your stage persona with a performance trainer and take to the stage to showcase your work to a live audience.  The performances will be recorded and available to you on completion of the course.

Participants will take part in seminars to develop not only their songwriting techniques and writing skills to improve their songs but also work with Logic Pro X to acquire the skills to sequence and record their own music. If that wasn’t enough, there will be sessions to focus on developing their performance techniques for live situations.

Led by music industry professionals, this is a course that will suit musicians who learn an instrument and wish to join a band, songwriters and established bands, and anyone who is interested in music technology and production.  This is ideal for musicians who learn a popular instrument including drums, vocals, keyboard, and electric, bass, and acoustic guitar.

The course takes place at Amersham College, Stanley Hill, Amersham, HP7 9HN, and runs between 10:00 - 16:00 each of the three days.  The cost is just £99.
