BIMM Manchester announces Make A Track! Summer School

29 June, 2022

BIMM Manchester has just announced their first-ever Make A Track! summer school, aimed at female and gender minority young people aged 11–16 years old and interested in recording, producing and making music.

Join the fantastic songwriting and music production team of tutors Chantelle Scott and Phoebe Pope to record and produce a song in a week – with a special industry guest, ZUZU. The Liverpudlian grunge-pop sensation will work with you to further develop your track and provide her expert input and guidance.

The summer school will be kicking off at BIMM’s Bank Chambers Building between Monday 25 and Friday 29 July with 11–13-year-olds attending between 10–12 pm and 14–16-year-olds attending between 1–3 pm.

On Monday and Tuesday, attendees will record and build their tracks, with an introduction to studio recording with the highly skilled Chantelle Scott. On Wednesday and Thursday, attendees will get the chance to arrange and mix their tracks, get to grips with industry-standard digital audio workstations (DAWs) and practice gain staging with Phoebe Pope.

On the final day, ZUZU will be in the house, providing her advice and knowledge to help develop participants’ tracks to the next level.

Sessions are free for attendees who are:

  • Black, Asian or from another ethnic group
  • A care leaver or care-experienced
  • From a low-income household (less than £25k a year)
  • Disabled (including mental health diagnosis)
