SongMakers mentors KLP and Anna Laverty will be mentors at a teen songwriting workshop in January, presented in partnership with APRA AMCOS and the Australian Music Vault

There is no way APRA AMCOS would miss out on being part of the Australian Music Vault, so we are proud to be named as a partner with Arts Centre Melbourne in the innovative and interactive exhibit that opens to the public 19 December. The AMV and APRA AMCOS partnership is based on our shared vision that reflects and supports practicing and aspiring composers and performers, with a dedicated songwriting and music industry workshop for teens being announced for January.

Created in collaboration with the music industry and dedicated to sharing the story of Australian contemporary music and exploring its future, the Australian Music Vault will include a free exhibition, education programs and a fully integrated digital program.

As part of this partnership, the Australian Music Vault is excited to be showcasing the Ted Albert Award winner each year, recognising outstanding service to Australian music. In addition to this, APRA AMCOS will be working with the Australian Music Vault Arts Learning team to develop ideas and programs that foster and support the next generation of songwriters. The first program that APRA AMCOS is supporting is the AMV Academy where mentors from the SongMakers program, writer/producer Anna Laverty (Meg Mac, Paul Dempsey, Courtney Barnett and others) and writer/performer/triple j presenter and APRA AMCOS Ambassador, KLP will flex their mentoring skills. Taking place from January 22-25 2018 , the AMV Academy invites young people aged 14-18 years of age to attend a week of skill-building and fun workshops that include songwriting, beat-making, VJing, DJing, band photography and merchandise production. Participants will also have the chance to use The Channel’s on site recording studio to record their own music.

APRA AMCOS Chair of the Board, Jenny Morris has been part of the Australian Music Vault Advisory Committee since its inception and has been a valuable contributor during the development of the Australian Music Vault. Morris says, “It all starts with the song. At the heart of Australian music are the stories of our songs and our songwriters. We’re thrilled to partner with the Australian Music Vault to celebrate the extraordinary history and memories, and the future of Australian songs.”

Dean Ormston, APRA AMCOS Head of Membership Services says, “With the Australian Music Vault comes recognition of the value of the Australian contemporary music industry. The Australian Music Vault not only revisits the moments and talent that have defined Australian music culture, but paves the way for the next generation of music creators. As a major partner of the Australian Music Vault we are proud to be investing in the future of Australian music.”
