I am so excited to be one of the 2021 recipient of the Transmission fund. Thanks to the support from Help Musicians I will be able to sign up for the 'Arranging for Songwriters: Instrumentation and Production in Songwriting' course offered by Berklee College.

This course is designed for songwriters who wish to become more proficient in arranging and production techniques and focalises specifically on the idea of prosody, in which all parts of a song work together to create an emotionally resonant whole. Students will learn how to create compositions in which the instrumentation, arrangement and production style serve the purpose of communicating the emotion of the song and support the lyric narrative throughout it.

Learning production to support my songwriting work has been a goal of mine for a long time and receiving this opportunity makes me so happy. I know that this course will help me progress in my career and musicianship and I can’t wait to get started!
