Push Songs returns for 2012!
Mick Thomas, Rebecca Barnard , Davey Lane and Jen Cloher join Charles Jenkins’ innovative and inspiring songwriter’s program, Push Songs in February and March to assist upcoming and emerging Victorian songwriters.
The free all ages program was established by Jenkins (Shopfront Songs) in 2009 in partnership with The Push and APRA, and with the generous support of the State Government’s Arts Victoria funding program and the Australian Government’s Australia Council.
Twelve applicants will be chosen to take part in three, one on one, 1.5 hour songwriting workshops between 21 February and 28 March at The Push offices in Brunswick. They will develop song ideas and sketches with Jenkins as well as two of this round’s special guest songwriters Thomas, Barnard, Lane and Cloher.
Participants from all corners of the state of Victoria of any age are encouraged to apply. Fill in the online application here.
Push Songs acknowledges the artistic, creative and long term benefits and positive career impact that the passing on of experience, skills, ideas, knowledge, encouragement, confidence and inspiration brings to a songwriter. Push Songs is a significant link in the music industry – taking a dedicated songwriter and their initial song ideas and offering support and practical advice from creation to completion. The Push is a Victorian youth music organisation, which runs a range of music industry training programs for young people and the wider Victorian music industry such as Face The Music Conference, Push Songs and FReeZA Push Start Band Competition.
Push Songs participants are chosen based on a number of determining factors. The panel judges applications on their individual merit, and aims to ensure that there is equal representation of gender, age and geography represented. The panel also uses their knowledge of the one-on- one song coaches to choose applicants who will achieve the most beneficial outcomes.
