Free Recording Opportunities for Young Musicians

Workshops for Musicians Not In Employment, Education or Training (Sonic Youths)

Every 4 months, the Green Door Studio offers a free 12-week music production workshop series for young musicians (aged 16-25) not in employment, education or training. Participants attend 5 weeks of hands- on recording and production skills workshops, every Tuesday and Wednesday from 3pm-7pm. They then each get their own full day recording session and a half may mixing session, whilst also assisting on fellow participant’s sessions. Spaces are very limited. Next series starts November 2015. This project is sponsored by Creative Scotland's Youth Music Initiative.

Supergroups

Open to unsigned bands and musicians aged 16-25, Supergroups give each band 5 days in the Green Door Studio to rehearse, record and mix a 4-5 song EP. We will choose a band a month starting in April 2013, and every 4 months, the 3 bands from the previous 3 months form a "Supergroup", who then also get 5 days in the Green Door Studio to rehearse, record and mix a 4-5 song EP. Your recordings get full digital distribution (to i-tunes, emusic etc) through Emu Bands. You also get a 4 hour recording skills workshop at the start of your session. This project is sponsored by Creative Scotland Youth Music Initiative and Emu Bands.

Electronic Music Club

Open to young people aged 12-25, Green Door will be hosting a FREE Electronic Music Club on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6pm-8pm. Green Door's Stuart Evans (Whilst (Optimo Music) / Sordid Sound System (Invisible, Inc)) and Lewis Cook (Happy Meals (Nightschool Records) / Instructional Media) will be teaching introductory workshops on making electronic music using drum machines, samplers and analog synth's. There are 6 places available on each course. This project is sponsored by Creative Scotland Youth Music Initiative.
