Little Pink Book and London Sound Academy ‘Level Up’
Women in music platform Little Pink Book has teamed up with DJ and Production school London Sound Academy to launch a six-part female-led series of online workshops and industry skills.
In association with Mixcloud Live, Dice and Pioneer DJ and streamed live on Mixcloud, each session will be led by some of the best in the game. The aim is to inspire womxn to explore careers in DJ and Production and tackle inequality and imbalance in the industry.
Throughout the sessions, there will be giveaways of the Pioneer DJ DDJ-200 Controller, the perfect product for learning how to DJ on. The workshops will demonstrate key DJ and production tips from LSA tutors Yazzus, Tayylor Made and Hemlin interspersed with music industry sessions hosted by DJ and Presenter Sarah Story.
The tutorials will be accessible to all with a link for attendees to pay what they can afford, all of which will go directly to the tutors to help towards loss of income due to COVID-19.
You can RSVP for the sessions via Dice and tune in on Little Pink Book Mixcloud channel each week. By tuning in live you will be able to ask questions and interact with the tutors throughout the session.
“We are really excited to have partnered with Little Pink Book to deliver this series of workshops. We are often the starting point for those looking to begin their journey into the music industry and we recognise how challenging and intimidating it can be to get started, especially for Womxn who are faced with breaking down much greater barriers from the start. With these workshops, we hope to inspire people to take their next step by demystifying the subjects of DJing, music production and the reality of working in the music industry.” – Noah Priddle from London Sound Academy
“I’m really passionate about shining a light on amazing women in the music industry and giving them a platform to share their experiences and advice which is how Little Pink Book was born. A main purpose of LPB is to tackle inequality in the industry through education and highlighting female role models who young women can look up to and follow in their footsteps. With this in mind, the partnership with London Sound Academy is extremely exciting and it would be amazing if we can inspire future festival headliners via the series.” – Roberta Hickey, Founder of Little Pink Book
