Aimed primarily at 14-21 year olds, but available to watch to anyone interested in the music writing process, producer and composer Brian Eno, and Radiohead guitarist Ed O'Brian, amongst a whole host of other experienced musicians and composers, have put together a series of free music masterclasses to encourage teenagers to take up music.
Titled Ear Opener, it is a series of free online video masterclasses designed for music students, teachers and independent music makers.
Ear Opener uses simple, accessible explanations of the tools people who write music use everyday, with practical tips that composers of any level can put straight into practice.
Electronic music pioneer Brian Eno, Radiohead guitarist Ed O’Brien and rapper Lowkey are among the musicians to have contributed to a new series of video masterclasses about the music-writing process. The initiative, titled ‘Ear Opener’, is aimed at demystifying the music writing process for young people, and is a free how-to guide featuring interviews with a number of different musicians.
