In The Mix (ITM) is a music program for emerging young artists looking to develop their skills, collaborate with other young musicians and learn about the West Australian music industry.
The 2020 ITM project will comprise of a series of hands-on workshops aimed at helping young people explore the music production and recording process. Participants will create their own groups, learn a song and then record it with Focus Music’s
production team. In addition, students will rehearse their song to
perform it at the Corymbia Festival. This will provide a variety of stimuli through which students can explore music – performing and recording - not only as a potential
career, but as a means for physical, emotional and cognitive wellbeing.
Young people aged 10-13 are welcome to apply for this program, however 14-25 year olds will be given priority when booking. We are looking for passionate musicians who are keen to learn and collaborate with other young artists. If you are a singer,
play an instrument, DJ or if you are simply interested in learning more about music then In the Mix is for you. Performers are welcome to apply as soloists, duets or bands.
Registrations for 2020 are now open.
As part of the program, there will be five music workshops held over February and March 2020 (dates TBC).
Participants will be invited to perform at an outdoor music concert on Saturday 7 March 2019 as part of the Corymbia Festival in Forrestfield. This concert will take place on an outdoor stage, with professional sound, lighting
and huge crowd supplied. To prepare participants for this big performance a mini concert will take place at Focus Music for friends and family.
Daryl from Focus Music will be running the workshops. Daryl has a strong background in performing and playing various styles such as Rock, Jazz, Funk, R&B, Reggae and Blues. His skills allow him to help musicians who find themselves in need of learning
that little missing piece of information to help them progress their playing to the next level, whatever that level may be.
