Calling All Young Musicians. MGC NEEDS YOU!
Young Carlow musicians (between the ages of 13-18 years) are invited to apply for a band development opportunity that will run throughout the first two weeks of August 2016 in Carlow Vocational School. Pioneered by Sarah Murphy and the team at Wall2Wall music, this opportunity will allow aspiring musicians to develop their skills, by exploring song-writing, improvisation, recording and production of their own music. Submissions are invited from musicians of all genres of music including rock, pop, traditional and technology.
This two week opportunity costs €40 and applications will be accepted by downloading the form below and returning to Paula Phelan by post to Music Generation Carlow, KCETB Offices, Athy Road, Carlow or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
