BIMM Institute Dublin is extremely pleased to announce the return of the Liber8 Music Project after its successful pilot launch back in September of 2017. The initiative, which offers free after-school music technology tuition for 13-17 year olds will again be running in partnership with our friends at the Digital Hub.
This programme, which takes its name from the Dublin 8 area in which it takes place, is a fantastic opportunity for young people who may otherwise have limited exposure to music and digital media to immerse themselves in a creative programme of activities.
For many students getting involved in the project this year, Liber8 offers the opportunity to learn 21st century music and recording skills which they otherwise may never have had access to, in a supportive environment which encourages the formation of new friendships and collaborative projects.
During the 10 week programme, classes will take place at The Digital Hub (Digital Depot building on Roe Lane, off Thomas Street, Dublin 8) and BIMM Institute Dublin, and will feature various modules design to broaden students skills in the following subjects.
- ‘Music Styles’ – Participants will go on a journey through lots of styles of music, what they sound like and what they mean.
- ‘Introduction to Performance Techniques’ – Participants will learn to use the guitar, bass, drums or vocals; and will perform live at the end of the project.
- ‘An Introduction to Recording and Sound Design’ – Participants will explore the use of technology to make the music they love.
Throughout The Liber8 Music Programme, the young participants will develop 21st century skills, such as teamwork, communication and critical thinking skills, that they will need to employ to succeed in their careers.
The programme commences on Wednesday, 26th September 2018, and will be completed in December 2018, with all course materials, equipment and musical instruments being provided for students at classes.
