Day 8 of the Carlow Young Creatives project here in Carlow
What a journey Week 1 has been for the Carlow Young Creatives!
Carlow Young Creatives, facilitated by Wall2Wall Music and funded under the Music Generation/Arts Council Partnership Programme, is currently underway here in Scoil Mhuire gan Smal NS Carlow.
The 30 participants are all aspiring young musicians, aged between 13-18 years, from across Carlow who enjoy writing and performing music, both as an individual or group member. The Carlow Young Creatives project allows the students the chance to explore the art of music making today and they are currently being guided day to day through the creative music-making process by the team of musicians and sound engineers from Wall2Wall Music.
So far the participants have been challenged to write their own material, compose their own melody lines, perform in front of their peers and consider the marketing direction of their band.
The 5 bands, consisting of 6 members each, all have a unique style and image and play a range of musical styles from traditional Irish to pop.
They will get the opportunity to record their own material towards the end of this week and here at Music Generation Carlow we are really excited to watch and experience the growth and development of these young musicians over the course of the next 2 weeks.
