The Push announces free electronic music program for young Victorian women and non-binary people

Words by Will Brewster

Applications are open now.

The Push, Victoria’s leading youth music organisation, has announced a string of electronic music production workshops for young female and gender non-conforming people in the new year.

Electronic Music Accelerator, which is being held in partnership with Ableton and the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation, will be made free for young Victorians aged 16-20 years old who are looking to pursue a career, interest or hobby in beat production.

The program will run over eight weekly sessions at The Push’s headquarters in Collingwood, and aims to allow its participants to develop their skills as producers using Ableton, as well as other essential skills such as networking, relationship building, and navigating the ins and outs of the Australian music industry.

All workshops will be facilitated by Beatrice Lewis, best known for her work with Haiku Hands and Kardajala Kirridarra, with each class also adhering to COVID-safe restrictions.

Applications for the 2021 Electronic Music Accelerator are open from now until 12pm Monday December 14.
