Turn Up The Quiet Online

Turn Up The Quiet is a series of workshops exclusively for those who identify as women or non-binary aged 13-18, who would like to learn new musical styles and develop creative ideas. The weekly workshops are open to singers and players of any music type or instrument – all abilities are welcome.

Turn Up the Quiet’s first workshops began in January 2019. They incorporated singing sessions that focused on popular and contemporary music genres – this led to the creation of the Contemporary Choir.
