It will provide aspiring teenage musicians with FREE access to advice, coaching and tuition from Music Industry Professionals. Participants will also have access to recording studios and the opportunity to gain experience in related areas such as engineering, journalism, management and production.
The Project will be launched at the Victoria Rooms on Queens Road on Wednesday the 22nd of October (7.15pm for 7.30pm) with performances and talks from local musicians and industry workers including the fabulous Jane Taylor.
