Similar to our Coast 2 Coast Masterclass, We Create 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 single or EP. The age group is what differentiates this programme from our Coast 2 Coast Masterclass as We Create is tailored to children between 8 and 15 years old. Guided by activity facilitators that are also professional singer-songwriters, the children will control the creative process—selecting instrumentals of their choice, and coming up with their lyrics and melody.
By the end of this programme, you will gain/build confidence, gain teamwork skills by working collaboratively with other children, actively engage in your learning and build creative technical skills. All our facilitators are trained in NSPCC Safeguarding and possess enhanced DBS.

WHAT IS THE COST OF THIS PROGRAMME?

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.
