Mentoring opportunity for beatboxer/rapper
Posted by Darren Leadsom on 17 January 2022
Are you a skilled beatboxer or rapper who would like to learn how to share your skills in music workshops and educational settings with young people?
More Music are offering a mentoring and shadowing opportunity to a rapper/beatboxer to be part of our weekly Lancashire Youth Vocal Ensemble (LYVE) session in Morecambe. A bursary is available to help cover the cost of your involvement. LYVE is an a cappella vocal group, aimed at young people aged 14 to 21, that combines contemporary pop and RnB music, rap and beatboxing to create a unique sound. You can find out more about LYVE here
The successful applicant will be part of the LYVE sessions, which take place at More Music in Morecambe on Wednesdays in term-time from 5.30pm to 7.30pm. You will learn from our experienced music leaders and find out how to combine your creative talents with the professional skills necessary in a music workshop/educational setting. You will have a passion for hip-hop, rap and beatboxing, and be keen to inspire and educate young people musically and encourage their talents. It’s a great opportunity to get an introduction into delivering music workshops and find out if it’s a path that interests you. A professional approach and abiding by More Music’s code of conduct is essential.
The opportunity covers a maximum of 10 sessions (4 hours per session including planning/set-up, delivery of the session and evaluating afterwards) and a bursary can be claimed to help cover costs of £48 a session (£12 an hour). The mentorship is available from January 2022 and will conclude at the end of March 2022. Dates for shadowing will be agreed between you and More Music.
