Workshops for budding music stars
ASPIRING musicians in Peterborough are being invited to hone their skills at free music workshops.
Beat This CIC and the housing association Cross Keys Homes have joined forces to create Vocalize - a series of seven free sessions for budding beatboxers, MCS and songwriters.
The first workshop takes place on Wednesday, January 11 in The Old Still in Queensgate Shopping Centre and will run every Wednesday until February halfterm holiday.
The sessions will allow partici- pants to record their work and will culminate in a grand finale performance.
Beat This CIC director Lee Ashton said: “We’re looking at getting people involved in music, music technology, beatboxing and getting themselves heard.
“If you’ve ever wanted to write your own song, work on your beatboxing skills or just show people what your capable of then you should come and sign up.
“We’ll have artists and professionals on hand to show you how it’s done and if you’ve already got the skills, give you a few pointers in the right direction.”
The workshops are available for people aged from 12 to 18.
All participants will get the chance to use professional music equipment.
