Sensoria
SENSORIA
will provide a range of practical skills workshops AND industry sessions explaining how to build a successful future career using those skills.

Resonator is a brand devised by SENSORIA. Traditionally a Resonator enables musicians to play louder and we want to help Sheffield’s budding new creatives to make the most of their talent. The whole programme of events enables young people to understand and capitalise on the value of their musical and creative skills. We will give participants a 360 degree guide of opportunities within the music industry – and how to make the most of their talents.

This programme is a pilot project and will be looking to review and expand for 2011.

The practical workshops will include:

The sessions can be booked individually and Resonator industry sessions are open to all students - it is not necessary to have attended a workshop session to come along to the Resonator talks, all students regardless of musical ability are welcome to these.
