Music Masterclassat T2F

With a diverse mix of producers and musicians becoming popular in recent years, the music industry seems to be representative of a wide array of people. However, the industry is lacking in an extremely important aspect: representation of female-identifying artists.

The music workshop conducted at T2F by international artists and comprising of vocalists, percussionists and bass guitarists with a background in jazz, theatre, TV and concerts hopes to address this by encouraging aspiring female musicians and giving them a masterclass on stage presence and performance.

Although aimed at pulling in female musicians, this workshop is open for anyone who hopes to pursue a career in music.
