Youth Fed and Mako Create Digital Music Making Workshop - March 12th 11- 17


28th February 2022

Do you want to make your own music WITHOUT having to play instruments?

On the 12th March Youth Fed are collaborating with Mako Create to run a 90-minute taster session that teaches you the basics of BandLab (an online digital audio workstation); taking you from creating your first new project through to exporting and sharing their finished piece of music. Elements of the music making process that are covered include:


  • Starting projects
  • Creating beats
  • Musical loops
  • Editing and mixing audio
  • Exporting and sharing a finished piece


This is a hands-on introduction to the creative process of composing digital music is perfect for anyone interested in creating music but does not know where to start.


All musical pieces created during the session will be accessible afterwards and can be shared with friends and family.
