Also returning for the Autumn season is the hugely-popular Songwriting course staged at East Kilbride Arts Centre.
Young people aged 12-17 are invited to join a team of music industry specialist songwriters and musicians in an exciting 10-week programme.
Open to anyone who writes their own lyrics, sings or plays an instrument, the course is an ideal chance to learn about song-writing, composition and arranging music whilst picking up hints and tips from their peers.
And, it all culminates in a performance at the East Kilbride Arts Centre, using professional sound and lighting equipment, to showcase the talents of those involved.
The course runs on Mondays from 17 September to 3 December at either 5-6.30pm or 7-8.30pm. The cost is just £45 / £35 (concession) and places are filling up fast. Call 01355 261000 to get in on the act.
