Music & Arts Projects
The Cartland’s Foundation supports musicians looking to make connections and get actively involved in making music a career choice.
Are you a vocalist, instrumentalist, producer or engineer – or believe you have what it takes to be professionally?
Regardless of whether you’ve had a hit record or are taking your first tentative steps into the world of professional music and need help and advice, our Musical Projects are there to highlight that music is a communal experience. It’s bigger than any individual. It’s about the coming together for a greater cause.
Our activities offer a unique opportunity to meet and work with like minded people in the music industry. To network. An opportunity for talented individuals to get involved in music making projects from start to finish, while enhancing your own skills.
Our members share a passion for music. They come from all areas of the music world – from talented vocalists and skilled musicians, to award winnings engineers and world acclaimed producers. The Cartlands Foundation offers an opportunity for all these groups to give back to the greater cause, which is music itself.
We provide a balanced programme of activities that helps to develop the whole musician – from Live Music and Performance Sessions, to Music Recording and Music Production – in an environment of social interaction and team working.
Our Mentoring Workshops offer members a unique opportunity to see in action and learn from some of the biggest names in the Music Industry. From hit writing musicians to grammy award winning producers, our mentoring sessions are amongst our most popular annual activities, run in locations across the world by music professionals committed to giving back to the music community by offering up their time to support up and coming talent.
In addition to benefiting from the range of programs, each member also commits to offering up one day a year to support their fellow musicians by sharing their own individual talent. Its a reciprocal benefit – musicians helping musicians – producers and engineers supporting fellow music makers.
Range of Activities:
Music Production Programmes
