Level Up

Level Up is an 8-week music course designed for emerging artists. It will equip you with the skills to create and release your own track, with the project building towards a listening party at a professional venue within Greater Manchester.

Every week you will have a different industry professional working with you, offering their expertise in songwriting (lyrics and melodies); programming, using Logic Pro; arranging; recording in professional studios; mixing and mastering.

You will also have a careers session discussing promoting and publishing your own music.
