What will you learn on this course? 

This is a fun one-day workshop where you will learn how to create your own bass-lines and beats.

This will include learning how to create basic arrangements and understanding song structure.

This course is suitable for young people aged 11 to 17 years. It is open to all ability levels you don’t need previous experience. Parents are not expected to accompany young people on these courses. All our staff are DBS checked. 

The course is accessible for young people of all abilities. A learning support worker is provided and a parent or carer may assist the young person if required. Carers must book a complimentary ticket if attending a course to provide support. The room is wheelchair accessible.
