About The Liber8 Music Project
Established by The Digital Hub and the BIMM Institute Dublin, the pilot run of The Liber8 Music ran during the 2017/2018 academic year with two classes of 20 young people attending the 10-week programme. The classes, free to attend for successful applicants, were held twice a week at The Digital Hub and BIMM Institute Dublin with a first group starting in October 2017 and a second group in February 2018. Course content for The Liber8 Music Project was been specifically developed by music education experts and practitioners within BIMM Institute Dublin. Over the course of 10 weeks, young people completed three modules. The ‘Music Styles’ module will invite participants to go on a journey through various styles of music, what they sound like and what they mean. In the ‘Introduction to Performance Techniques’ module, the young people will learn to use the guitar, bass, drums or vocals, culminating with a live performance at the end of the programme. Finally, in the ‘An Introduction to Recording and Sound Design’ module, participants explored the use of technology to make the music they love.
