We’re looking for passionate young people to help us plan, produce and create fresh new content that will inform and inspire young musicians.
Whether it’s online tutorials, new music or interviews with inspiring artists - whatever you think we could be doing or talking about online, we’re all ears.
Maybe you’re already full of ideas, or maybe you’ll discover them along the way. This is a great chance to:
- Learn new skills
- Meet new people
- Create something exciting
Stage 1: Planning
If you fancy taking part you’ll need to come to three planning sessions at our office in central Manchester (more details below).
At these workshops, we'll work together to turn your initial ideas in a full production plan. The sessions will be led by experienced music leader Phill Howley.
You'll get pizza and £20 (per session) towards your attendance.
Stage 2: Production
After the third session we’ll work with you for a further six weeks to bring your ideas to life. Specific dates for these sessions will be decided nearer the time.
You’ll be fully supported throughout, with access to:
- Mentoring from the Brighter Sound team
When and where
- Monday 6 February - 5-7pm
- Monday 27 February - 5-7pm
- Monday 20 March - 5-7pm
The more sessions you can make the better. If you can’t make every date let us know when you sign up and we’ll do our best to make it work.
