Taster Music Industry Workshops

If your school cannot participate in the TICE programme (Insight, ExploreCreate Stages & TICE Final Show) for whatever reason or your school would like to sample another area alongside the programme then please view the Music Industry Taster Workshops below.

1. Insight into Music

This one-day workshop takes place in school and is an introduction to the music industry. This involves the scope of the creative sector, career progression and fundamental creative business knowledge.

2. Explore Music

Explore workshops run over a period of two days. This involves taking students out of school and immersing them into the music industry. Students have the chance to participate in ‘behind the scenes’ tours, speak with creative entrepreneurs and business professionals. We look into further and higher educational courses and look at key skills the music industry is looking for.

3. Create in Music

'Create in Music' are 3 day workshops whereby schools can select project of their choice. Students will gain further insight into a specific area of music ind. Each project will involve guest speakers, tours, skills development and a completed piece of individual or group work.
