Want to work in the music industry?

The FReeZACentral music industry workshops are back! All around Victoria in June and July, FReeZACentral is holding free, accredited training days for young people aged 15 to 25 who are interested in a music industry career. This year’s FReeZACentral workshops are happening in Croydon (June 23), Leongatha (June 26), Ararat (June 30), Wangaratta (July 3), central Melbourne (July 7), Swan Hill (July 11), Werribee (July 14) and Hamilton (July 18).

Over 500 young people attend the FReeZACentral workshops each year. Of the workshop participants statewide, 50 young people in the 18-25 year age bracket are chosen for the FReeZACentral mentoring program, which matches young people to an experienced music industry professional in their chosen field, whether they’re performers or aspiring sound engineers, marketing professionals, event managers or music business operators.
