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.

Years of Experience in Making Music
Very helpful, professional and great with the boys in 5th class.
Garry has the ability to work with students and make them want to be the best that they can be. They admire him. They listen to his advice and act upon it.
Garry covered a range of topics that are relevant to the curriculum; rhythm and beats - music literacy, poetry and rhyme - English literacy, self esteem building and confidence building activities.
Reliable, well-prepared, professional and oodles of creativity! GMCBeats has great ability to draw ideas and words from weak students in very short workshop periods - just magic, a favorite workshop in our school annually.
Garry is respected and admired by the young people who attend our course, he has always worked well with the groups encouraging and challenging them creatively, while always remaining friendly, patient and fun in his approach to teaching.
