Workshops for Musicians Not In Employment, Education or Training (Sonic Youths)
Every 4 months, the Green Door Studio offers a free 12-week music production workshop series for young musicians (aged 16-25). Participants attend 5 weeks of hands- on recording and production skills workshops, every Monday and Tuesday from 3pm-7pm. They then each get their own full day recording session and a half may mixing session, whilst also assisting on fellow participant’s sessions. Spaces are very limited.
Open to unsigned bands and musicians aged 16-25, Supergroups give each band 5 days in the Green Door Studio to rehearse, record and mix a 4-5 song EP. We will choose a band a month, and every 4 months, the 3 bands from the previous 3 months form a "Supergroup", who then also get 5 days in the Green Door Studio to rehearse, record and mix a 4-5 song EP. You also get a 4 hour recording skills workshop at the start of your session. This project is sponsored by Creative Scotland Youth Music Initiative.
Electronic Music Club (currently unavailable)
Open to young people aged 12-25, Green Door will be hosting a FREE Electronic Music Club on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6pm-8pm. Green Door's Stuart Evans (Whilst (Optimo Music) / Sordid Sound System (Invisible, Inc)) and Lewis Cook (Happy Meals (Nightschool Records) / Instructional Media) will be teaching introductory workshops on making electronic music using drum machines, samplers and analog synth's. There are 6 places available on each course. This project is sponsored by Creative Scotland Youth Music Initiative.
Music Production Workshop For The Home (or Not) Recordist. (currently unavailable)
All ages welcome, only six places, it will be orientated towards the home recordist though we will be covering studio techniques such as recording drums, signal chains, compression, reverb etc though it will be in the context of being transferable to the home / small studio set up (primarily centred around DAWs such as protools/ableton/logic but I will be covering other alternatives including cassette for the determined analog user!). There will be a certain amount of individual tailoring for those who wish to partake.
