From the outset, the Fund has been offering training workshops and courses designed to enhance young people's knowledge and provide practical skills in specific areas of music.
The first workshops the Fund organised was a programme of online workshops on songwriting, led by one of Scotland’s leading young song writers, Yvonne Lyon. The LCMF Songwriting Workshops with Yvonne Lyon were held over three weeks with a combination of group workshops and one-to-one sessions the tutor gave t5o each participant.
The first of the Fund's 'Setting the Stage' one-day workshops was organised in June 2023. This innovative event provided a unique opportunity for young people to get 'hands on experience of live event production (sound, lighting, stage crewing and event management). This ground-breaking training workshop brought together industry professionals at a "mock concert" with live bands sound-checking in a real world, theatre setting. The feedback from staff and trainees alike led to a immediate decision to repeat these workshops.
