...is to empower, inspire and transform lives through the power of creativity, music and community led activity.
...is for everyone to live in inspired, creative and transformed communities.
We will strive to enable everyone to explore their own creativity through a variety of artistic mediums.
We will include the voices and opinions of those we engage with – our young people, our volunteers and our community in everything we do and be led by them.
We will always look to promote opportunities for all and ensure that every individual has an equal opportunity to make the most of their lives and talents.
Everything we do - we will do with passion!
DD8 Music is a registered Scottish charity, dedicated to promoting involvement in musical and creative activities to people of all ages in the Kirriemuir area. We run a rehearsal and recording studio in Kirriemuir. It is a space where people can have the freedom to experiment with music, and be encouraged to develop their talent.
Our Youth Sessions are for young people aged 11 to 25 years old. These sessions are about coming together, enjoying music and creating art. Don't worry if you're not in a band as individuals can work together jamming and writing songs. If you are in a band come along and get help and advice. The sessions are free and give a good introduction to what DD8 Music can offer. Don't be shy!
We cover song writing, learning instruments, playing music with others, music technology including recording and editing and using DAW software, as well as creating and running events that can be enjoyed by the wider community.
