The mentors will construct the bands and then you’ll head off to a rehearsal room with your bandmates and start working up a cover song, get creative and feel free to bend the genres and the rules.
On Tuesday morning we kick off with a Songwriting workshop led by our amazing mentors, getting you started on your way to writing your original song. After the workshop, you’ll join a different band and with your new bandmates head to your rehearsal room to co-write your original song.
On Wednesday morning we have some instrument workshops with specialist pro players, then it’s back to rehearsals of originals and covers.
Thursday is a day to polish both your cover and original, get to the finer points of each song in readiness for recording and the live performance.
