If you would like to book GMC’s rap & music workshops for your school, youth group or private party then email (or simply click the contact tab on the right of the screen) or call 085 118 60 65.

These workshops cater for all ages and for all levels of ability. I have my own professional portable recording and production equipment meaning you will get your very own tracks recorded by the end of the workshop. I can also cater for groups looking to make their own music videos or music websites. For those who really don’t fancy rapping (although I encourage everyone to try it), you can sing, play guitar, produce beats, play keyboard on the songs we create in the workshop.

This is a truly unique, engaging and creative experience which can be enjoyed by anyone! Not just those who are into rap!
