I'm currently trying to pull together a community project I've named You Are Instrumental; an inclusive, community-based project that has evolved from years of wanting to create but being unsure of how to start off in Sydney’s local music scene.
Whether it is due to financial impediments, a lack of knowledge or plain nervousness starting out in the music business, it is no easy feat.
There is a large cross-section of the local community yearning to partake in the music sector but lacking the fundamental resources to begin.
So then, what if we could introduce people to the core underpinnings of our local music culture & provide them with the basic tools to bring their musical creativity to life?
You Are Instumental is a day of practical music workshops, where people can learn skills hands-on and help cultivate their musical talents.
For all our friends who used to sing or play or write and just don’t do that anymore
For all of us who daydream about being a rock star…
Imagine spending the day learning how to write songs, record music, edit your tracks, present on radio, try out singing, learn the basics of dj-ing and end the day watching live acts with your friends, all for a donation.
p.s - If you have any contacts in Community radio or want to help please send me an e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org :)
