Everyone can make music

GMCBeats Workshops’ philosophy is that, no matter what your age is, your experience or ability, you can make music and should never be discouraged from doing so.

We offer fun and energetic songwriting and rap workshops, combined with the latest in recording technology and easy-to-use apps, allowing you to piece together a full song within hours. These accessible tools and techniques can be used at home to help you with your own music-making or build confidence in pursuing your music education or even building a career out of music.

These workshops have been delivered nationwide since 2009 resulting in features on TV, radio and news media, but above all, participants end up with a song of their own that they can share with family and friends.
