Music SA Presents Winter Jams

This winter school holidays kids between 13 and 17 years with a passion for music can take part in a three day music course – Music Jams - starting on Tuesday 7 July at St Pauls Creative Centre thanks to City of Adelaide and Music SA.

Lord Mayor Martin Haese said Music Jams is for young people interested in music , song-writing and video production to be mentored by experienced professionals to perfect their music skills and learn how to write, record and film their own music.

“Supporting the growth of young talent within Adelaide is important and programs like Music SA’s Winter Jams help our young people experience the professional side of their interests,” said Martin.

“City of Adelaide understands there is great value in supporting local businesses like Music SA to run programs that inspire learning in a fun and supportive environment.

“As part of our Live Music Action Plan, our role is to enable, facilitate, fund and partner with the music industry to generate creative opportunities within South Australia, now and for the future generations,” said Martin.

Music SA General Manager Lisa Bishop said giving young people a chance to work closely with professionals that they respect gives them a big head start in the music industry and helps encourage further progression in their passion for music.

“Ricky Kradolfer from City Riots, music producer Dale Taylor and the boys from Capital Waste Pictures will be there sharing skills and methods that go into turning music compositions from paper to screen and sound,” said Lisa.

“Each day will have a different focus that contributes to crafting the final product, a music video to accompany their newly recorded songs.

“Day one will focus on writing lyrics, day two will involve recording the music and insights into video production, and the day three will see the young music producers creating their own music video,” she said.

On Friday 10 July graduates and their families will attend a screening where students will present their final productions to everybody on a big screen.

The course will be popular and places are limited so people should register soon at cityofadelaide.com.au/winterjams

The cost is just $50 for the three day program.
