Cork Opera House will host a rapping and songwriting workshop for children aged 10 - 16 with Cork rap legend GMC as part of Cruinniu na nÓg on Saturday June 15th 2019.
Garry McCarthy (GMCBeats Workshops) runs rap & beats workshops for schools and youth groups on creative songwriting, rapping, singing, recording, production & music technology. Participants get to write and record their own lyrics and songs while using the latest production technology. The “Song-in-a-Day” workshop caters to people of all ages and abilities to help develop their identities, skills and creativity through urban music and technology. Garry believes that everyone can make music regardless of skill or experience.
