Rock dreams to come true at Flowerfield

HAVE YOU ever wanted the opportunity to write and record your own songs? Is it a dream to hold a CD in your hand of a song that you have helped to write and played or sung on? Read on...

Over Monday and Tuesday July 5-6 at Flowerfield Arts Centre, some of the best and most experienced musicians from the music scene in Ireland are making themselves available to deliver a composition & recording workshop with a CD at the end of it.

They will teach you about song structure, how to write chords, lyrics, put it all together - and then record you performing your song. The workshops are being funded by Coleraine Borough Arts Committee.

“All we need to know is that you want to give it your best shot and have a good time; the tutors will do the rest.”
