Drumming & Live Looping Masterclass with Steve Strong

Calling all young professional, semi-professional and aspiring musicians living near Stroud!  

We’re extremely excited to have the insanely talented multi-instrumentalist, producer & composer Steve Strong, hosting our very first Musicians Masterclass Sessions @SVA.  

Steve Strong is a one man arsenal of beats, tapped guitar and lush textural melodies. His music is as witheld as it is grandiose, as skeletal as it is layered, equal parts shimmering and pulsing. It glimmers, swings and explodes in all the right places, sliding gracefully from one section to another, played as tightly as it is loose and free.  

Steve’s masterclass includes:  

A short performance, insight in to his work-flow.  

Vital information on how to network, play shows, tour, present your music to labels, from an Independent, DIY perspective.  

He’ll discuss the realness of music, and how you don't have to be schooled on music to create something interesting.  

Don’t miss this opportunity to get up close and personal with one of the music industry’s true powerhouses of authentic creativity!  

Musicians Masterclass Sessions are designed to empower emerging & established home-grown talent as they take the next steps in their careers.
