LAST DANCE: PRODUCERGIRLS WORKSHOP
BEGINNER LEVEL ELECTRONIC MUSIC MAKING FOR GIRLS
10 MARCH 2018
EXPERT ADVICE, TIPS AND FREE SOFTWARE
Learn to produce and mix music in this beginners workshop, run by London-based Producergirls at Lighthouse, as part of our Last Dance programme.
Aimed at those just starting out, participants will learn how to use Ableton software to create drum beats, build melodies and baselines, learn how to arrange songs, and add effects.
Producergirls was founded by London-based producer and DJ, E.M.M.A., in 2016, alongside fellow producers P Jam, Dexplicit, Ikonika and Nightwave, to encourage more young women to take up electronic music production. Brighton-based Lara Rix-Martin and Etch will also join for this session.
“I’ve built a dream team of amazing producers. Everyone will get free access to software so that they can hit the ground running to develop their sound and make some tunes!" – E.M.M.A.
