Anyone aged 12 – 17, whether in a band or a solo musician, can come out and learn the ins and outs of what it takes to make it in Calgary’s music industry.

“Inside Music is designed for young musicians, who want to get plugged into the broader music scene in Calgary, to come out and learn,” says program coordinator Aaron Taylor. “As well as improving live performance skills, they’ll learn about the business side of music – promotion, recording studios and networking.”

The program, put on by The City’s Community & Neighbourhood Services, is open to all types of musical artists.  It runs Tuesday nights from 6 – 8 p.m., July 9 – August 27.
