Things I Wish I’d Known is for any young creative aged 13-18 with questions about the music industry that need answering.

Held monthly on Zoom, each meet-up will be led by guest artists chatting about:

  • Different career paths you can take
  • Mistakes to avoid before you make them
  • Everything else they wish they’d known when first starting out

Come along to learn about:

  • Getting gigs
  • Standing out in a crowd
  • Making money from your music
  • Careers available in the music industry
  • And more - tell us any questions you have and we’ll find people to answer them at future meet-ups

Safer spaces

At all of our projects we aim to create spaces that are welcoming, engaging and supportive. Spaces where everyone is able to be themselves, but also where abuse and discrimination are not tolerated.

Creating a safe and welcoming environment, where everyone is respected and valued, is also at the heart of safeguarding, and Brighter Sound’s safeguarding approach.

Read our Safer Spaces Policy for more information.
