Genelec Offers G SongLab Online Sessions in June

Victoria Wasylak • MMR GlobalSupplier Scene • June 4, 2020

Genelec recently announced the launch of G SongLab, an initiative that forms part of the Genelec Academy and offers young people free access to a safe online learning community through which they can collaborate and engage with others in developing their skills in songwriting and music creation. The G SongLab concept has been developed by a team of songwriters and music educators led by Petter Korkman and Anna Kuoppamäki. Webinar sessions are held in English. The project provides an international online learning community for all young songwriters aged between 13 and 29, allowing them to participate from the comfort of their homes and share their songs with others – which is particularly beneficial in view of the recent COVID-19 outbreak.

June G SongLab webinar dates are upcoming and include the following:

“Introduction to G SongLab,” June 6, 6:00 to 11:00 a.m. EDT

Anybody can write a song! In this ‘getting to know you’ session, we’ll start off gently and show you how writing a song can be organized into a set of simple steps. Join us and learn how to start with a blank sheet of paper – and finish with a demo recording! Between 13:00 and 15:00 [6 a.m. to 8 a.m. EDT] we’ll get you started, then from 15:00 to 17:00 [8 a.m. to 10 a.m. EDT] you’re free to work offline and develop your ideas. Finally, at 17:00 [10 a.m. EDT] we’ll meet again online for a one hour wrap-up session.
