The department of Music and Drama at the University of Huddersfield are delivering a series of workshops in partnership with YSWN and the new music charity Sound and Music on their nationwide initiative Go Compose. This project offers workshops and masterclasses in music for children and young people across the country with a particular emphasis on encouraging young people to compose and make their own music.
In Huddersfield, the Go Compose Project will launch as the leading Electronic Music Production Summer School in Yorkshire for girls and women* which will take place over six weekends in July and August 2019.
This unique offer gives girls and young women the opportunity to discover a whole range of ways to explore making music and being creative. Participants will have hands-on experience guided by experts in their specialised fields.
*All events welcome young non-binary people.
The workshops are split into two age ranges. The three workshops aimed at ages 11-15 include discovering Indian music and exploring the ins and outs of a professional music studio, developing skills as an electronic music producer and making your own track, and learning about sound art through everyday objects.
The three workshops aimed at ages 16-18 include learning how to DJ, discovering sound design for film, theatre and TV, and finally an opportunity to build your own synthesiser and create soundscapes.

*On Monday 8 July, the participants from the Learn to DJ workshops are invited to perform at Small Seeds music venue. The set-up will be from 1pm, the performances will begin at 5pm and the day will finish at 8pm.
