PROGRAM MISSION STATEMENT
The mission of the ARBA Youth in Blues program is to educate, nurture and foster the next generation of South Australian blues musicians.
We will provide participants with the opportunity to be educated and mentored by experienced professional musicians.
They will learn about the history of the blues, blues musical forms, songwriting, stagecraft and marketing. They will get the opportunity to connect, rehearse and perform with other young musicians. There will also be public performance opportunities.
The program will also aim to introduce the participants and their families to the wider blues community and foster connections that will continue well past the formal program duration.
The ARBA Youth in Blues Program will become an important contributor to the ongoing sustainability and longevity of the blues scene in South Australia.
WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR TO JOIN THE PROGRAM?
We are looking for young people between the ages of 12 and 20 who play a musical instrument and/or sing and want to play and/or learn blues music.
We’re looking for people who sing, play guitar, bass, harmonica, piano, drums, trumpet, saxophone and trombone.
Participants will need to supply their own musical instrument and be able to bring them to all four rehearsals and the performance. This means drummers will need to bring their own kit. Guitar, bass and piano players will need to bring their own instrument and amp.
