AudioActive will be running taster sessions for 13-19 years combining their Female Led young Women’s Projects ‘Equaliser’ & ‘Vocalise”. 

‘Vocalise’ concentrates on song and lyric writing with a focus on the positive effect that singing and rapping can have on a young person’s mental wellbeing. Those who attend the free sessions are encouraged to voice it with music in a laid-back, women-only space. 

‘Equaliser’ is a female-only space that offers free digital music production workshops for young women. It is led exclusively by female tutors. By creating a safe haven for female musicians with an interest in production and music technology, Equaliser redresses the music industry’s archaic gender imbalance.
