Pathways in Music in Aotearoa
WHEN: Saturday August 6th, 10am-2:30pm
WHERE: Roundhead Studios, Tāmaki Makaurau
WHAT: 2 panels, a studio tour and an hour for lunch
This year we are expanding our To The Front Tāmaki Makaurau programme for interns!
The purpose of the intern programme is to create a supportive community of young performers and music fans, and to create connections with the music industry. Our interns (aged 16-20 yrs) are talented and engaged youth with a passion for music.
To kick off our intern programme in the lead-up to our To The Front Tāmaki Makaurau 2023 programme, we are proud to present Pathways in Music, a day of workshops covering pathways in music after high school in Aotearoa. These moderated panels will be held on Saturday August 6th at Roundhead Studios and will cover two main themes. In the morning session we will explore how to get your song out of your bedroom and into the world. Later in the afternoon we will look at jobs, roles and communities within the music sector that exist beyond high school.

TĀMAKI MAKAURAU PROGRAMME
To The Front Tāmaki Makaurau is a series of youth music programmes open to youth aged 12-17 years who are women, transgender, intersex, takatāpui, and gender diverse.
At the programme they learn instruments, form bands, write original songs, and perform at a showcase, all guided by musicians and industry professionals. Alongside collaborative learning, participants take part in workshops about DIY merchandise, mindfulness, and performance skills. Each day they enjoy lunchtime performances from local artists.
