~Young people with an interest in music are generally considered to be musicians. Even if they don’t play an instrument they may dabble in creating mix tapes or have a natural ability with computers that teach an individual how to blend different musical instruments together.

On Saturday March 9th between 2pm -4pm UCLAN is hosting an event which caters for the above. ‘Drop in Music Technology Session’ is taking place at Room 220 in the Media Factory, Preston Campus.

It’s an ideal opportunity to learn how to make your own digital musical instruments and MIDI controllers and share your creations with others at this and many other drop in sessions.

Drake Music is teaming up with Preston Hackspace and No Label Arts to run six sessions in music technology. You and your new found friends will be able to have a go at  percussion, keyboards and music software.

Primarily aimed at 16-25 year old but outside ages can still apply and the session is reaching out to those with and without disabilities. The great news? No previous technical knowledge is required as all applicants will receive expert training and advice.

The event is free and no booking is required, just turn up on the day with a willingness to learn and apply yourself to the computer software. A genuine interest in music though is essential.

This project is supported by the Cooperative Foundation and the Government. Additional support provided by the UCLAN Something for Everyone project.
