COAST 2 COAST MASTERCLASS

The TC Coast 2 Coast Masterclass is a songwriting and sound recording programme designed to take beneficiaries from one end of the creative spectrum (songwriting) to the other end. The other end of this spectrum involves having a fully recorded, mixed, mastered, and release-ready EP created collaboratively by the young people on the programme. Guided by talented songwriters and music industry professionals, participants of this programme will engage in collaborative songwriting, coming up with their own melodies and, with our support, a release strategy which will include an EP release party. 

By the end of this programme, you will have more songs to add to your creative portfolio, build confidence, and learn techniques used by other artists, including their song structures and vocal techniques. Whether you’re a rapper, vocalist, producer, sound engineer, there’s a place for you on this project, either in music production or performance.

WHY LEARN WITH US?

True Cadence was founded by a young person, for young people. Our programmes are co-designed with beneficiaries to ensure that the teachings are relevant to their needs. We are lived experience leaders and not just a group of people with “a good idea”. We’re creatives, we live and breathe music, and we’re “students of the game”, and this enables us to keep learning and come up with fresh ideas on how to support our young people with all aspects of their music careers. We are from the same community as our beneficiaries, we understand the challenges young people from under-resourced communities face. Our facilitators are relatable and provide uncapped music industry knowledge and activities in a way that is engaging, relatable and impactful to our young people and community.
