target age range 8+Sly DJ & MC


To produce a compilation CD of original music using music technology with decks and vocals.


Participants will have the opportunity to:

  • compose and record original music
  • work with professional Deejay and MC
  • use music technology and decks
  • produce and edit their work using computer based editing programs

Sly will provide all equipment and resources required to deliver the workshop.

Workshop format

All projects delivered by Sly can be adapted to suit individual requirements, but this is a possible plan.

We at Sly have, through experience found that there always needs to be an element of flexibility in a workshop schedule, however we often start with the following model:

Sly will have for example 2 areas in which the participants work:

  • Area 1 : Deejay Skills/composition
  • Area 2 : Lyric writing/arranging

Working in both areas, participants will learn about  beat matching, mixing and scratching, lyric writing and arranging.

All the work in progress is saved centrally, and so is accessible from all areas via the Sly computer network.

As the workshop develops, and the participants “take ownership” of the project, the timetable becomes more flexible, and work is focussed in the areas needed to finish the track.

We encourage the participants to perform their finished work to peers, mums and dads etc towards the end of the sessions.
