June 6th 2023
Quirky Music launches "LEVEL UP": a series of online workshops focused on empowering emerging artists to up-skill and take their music to the next level.

Emerging artists looking to enhance their knowledge and take their music career to new heights can now apply for the "LEVEL UP" comprehensive five-part series of online workshops.


This programme is designed to provide participants with the tools they need to up-skill and succeed in the competitive music industry. Led by artist development consultant Katie Thompson, "LEVEL UP" will offer ten participants the opportunity to take part in five online group workshops and two one-on-one mentoring sessions.


The workshops will be held over the span of 11 weeks and will cover a range of essential topics, including goal setting, music industry insights, image & branding, funding options and single release checklist. 


The "LEVEL UP" programme is for artists who are based outside of main centres that demonstrate talent and are currently working towards releasing original music.


Participants will benefit from the opportunity to gain insights into the music industry from a seasoned professional, receive feedback on their progress and set actionable goals for their future.


"The workshops are designed to help emerging artists develop their skills, gain knowledge and confidence," said Thompson. "I'm excited to be leading this programme and working with a group of dedicated and talented artists."


This programme is free to chosen applicants thanks to the Capability Grant, NZ Music Commission.


Applications for LEVEL UP are now open and close on 30 June. All sessions will be held via Zoom and dates can be found on the website.
