Darcy Dhu finds his Beat

During the first week of the July school holidays, I had the opportunity to co-write a song as part of the Beatmakers four-day workshop, which aims to educate school students on music production.

The course was held at the 98.5 Sonshine FM radio station and consisted of multiple school students with ages ranging from 10 to 15.

The program was conducted by Byron Keno, who has an experienced career in music production. The final track was played on 98.5 Sonshine FM, in which I played one of the guitars.

The experience taught me about the key aspects of music writing, how to use certain editing software and improved my guitar skills. It was a fun and worthwhile course that gave me a better understanding of music production. Please listen to the final track.
