George Donoghue and Danny Harvey have launched a new venture called Sonic Workshops, with the aim of bringing together like-minded, ambitious and driven individuals into an education community based around the ideas of support and mentoring.
With The Musicians’ Union today reporting that one third of musicians are considering abandoning the industry completely, due to financial hardship caused by the coronavirus pandemic, times have never been as hard for the creative industry and while the Sonic Workshops are unable to wave a magic wand in this area, at least it is something to help people work towards achieving their goals.
George Donoghue told MetalTalk: “From the outside the music industry can feel like an all-too exclusive club, with no number on the door, no clear route in and no map you can rely on. Good guides are hard to come by.
“When I was younger all I wanted was someone to answer my questions, help me navigate the waters and point me in the right direction.
Sonic Workshops is an evolutionary part of music education, allowing musicians to access active professionals as mentors. We pride ourselves on our community, encouraging accountability, hard work and opportunities.
Our aim is to help our clients achieve their goals and amplify their careers.”
The company describes itself as “…a community of forward-thinking ambitious people who teach and encourage accountability, team building and networking. We offer 1-to-1 online mentoring with some of the most pioneering and active people in the music industry today.
We endeavour to match you with a mentor and a team that can help you to achieve your career goals and ambitions.”
