Our Studio Sessions aim to give young people, aged 11 – 16 years, the chance to learn how to record and produce their own music, using state of the art drum machines, synthesizers, midi instruments and Logic Pro software. They will work alongside Severn Arts teachers, who specialise in production and development as well as industry professionals. 

These sessions will take place every Saturday morning over the course of five weeks starting on Saturday 8 June, 9:30 – 11:30am. The group will be limited to a maximum of 14 students between two teachers. Split into two and taking it in turns, half will start in the Severn Arts Office Space before moving onto the Music Box and vice versa.
