Making Music are hosting a free Information and Advice event for anyone connected with voluntary music making in Guernsey, on Sunday 14 September, 11.30 – 16.45 at the Roseville Community Centre in St Peter Port. The event will provide an opportunity for amateur musicians from across the island to come together, talk about and ask questions about the topics that concern them most.
Making Music is here to help with all aspects of running a music group on a voluntary basis – be it marketing, social media, writing funding applications, recruitment, or any other issue that may arise. Through this event, we aim to share some of our experience and advice with musicians in Guernsey, for them to share their own experiences and advice with each other, and to provide an opportunity for them to network with other musicians and organisations across the island.
The event will be facilitated by Sharon Moloney, Making Music’s Area Manager for the South East, who has a wealth of experience as an amateur musician and committee member.
