Melbourne, Australia – Victoria’s leading youth music organisation The Push is proud to announce the first intake of their brand-new Electronic Music Accelerator program in partnership with Ableton—the world-leading brand of electronic music making software and hardware—and Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation.
The Electronic Music Accelerator seeks to develop and support Australia’s next generation of electronic music makers, producers and aspiring artists who identify as female or gender-non-conforming. Operating out of The Push’s new home in Collingwood Yards, this free program is open to young Victorians aged 16-20 years old, who are interested in kick-starting a career in the contemporary music industry.
Applications are open now until 12pm Monday 14 December. For more information and how to apply, visit: thepush.com.au.
Over eight weekly sessions, program participants will have the opportunity to develop their skills in the field of electronic music production, grow their professional capacity, build relationships and master a variety of techniques using Ableton.
The workshops will be facilitated by Beatrice Lewis (Haiku Hands, Kardajala Kirridarra) who brings a wealth of knowledge and first-hand industry experience to the program, to serve as both teacher and mentor.
The Push Electronic Music Accelerator is supported by Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation and Ableton.
