Absolute Beginners 2021
Your excuse to make some noise in a season filled with workshops
Absolute Beginners is back! Music (making) is for everyone. That's why we organize another season of Absolute Beginners, a series of workshops for everyone who wants to try out music in a safe space, whether you want to take your first steps in producing, have an interest in music journalism or have always been dreaming of your own girl band.
This summer, Absolute Beginners will take place every Wednesday between 14h and 18h at Trix. Usually there will be three workshops at the same time. The ideal moment to meet some creative likeminded spirits!
There will also be three longer workshops, which take place over the course of a full day from 10am to 5pm: 'Making Podcasts', ‘PA & Sound Engineering’ and 'Lightning Techniques'.
Every workshop costs €20. The longer ones cost €35. We offer concession spots to anyone in need of them. Please send us an email!
All courses will take place in small groups of maximum 15 people.
