About Ear Opener:
Launching in September 2020, Ear Opener is a series of video masterclasses that demystify the process of writing music. It combines simple, accessible explanations of the tools that people who write music use everyday, with honest discussion about the creative process. Featuring interviews from celebrated musicians and composers from across the genre spectrum, including legendary producer Brian Eno, jazz composer and saxophonist Cassie Kinoshi, Radiohead guitarist Ed O’Brien, film and TV composer Isobel Waller-Bridge, rapper Lowkey and many more.
Ear Opener has been created for any young person creating their own music – whether you’re studying music in school (GCSE/ A Level) or you make music in your own time. You don’t need to know any music theory, and it is for people making computer-based tracks or for acoustic instruments. To find out more, go to earopener.co.uk.
