11:11 Music Makers Lab

Music Makers Lab 1

Want to make music with others? Sing or rap bars with a live band? Learn a new instrument? 

During Summerversity, you can help start a new group from scratch, making new tunes and performing together.

Anyone can come along, whether you’ve been making music for years or are just getting into it. Whatever your style or genre, you can do vocals, play your own instrument or try out our band instruments. We’ll also give you tips on how to develop your skills singing, rapping, performing and composing. All you need is passion and enthusiasm for music.

There’ll be professional musicians and mentors in all styles of music to help you join in, whatever level you are. 
Who’s this for? 
•    Singers/rappers/spoken word
•    Keys & guitar players
•    Rhythm section players (drums/bass/percussion)
•    Woodwind/brass/string players (e.g. from more of a classical background)
•    Electronic musicians/beatmakers (laptop/phone/loopers)
•    Anyone who hasn’t played music before, but is interested in picking up a band instrument (guitar/bass/drums/keys/vocals).
