EXTENDED: Think You Have What It Takes To Bring Your Own Music To The World Stage?

Thanks to Elements Music Camp, now is your chance

Music is a part of everyone’s life. We were sung lullabies as babies, learned our ABCs through rhymes and pass the time between bus stops with a carefully curated playlist on loop. But while we all listen and have our favorites, music doesn’t call everyone—it’s not something you can just pick up and charge into the future with.

But if you think you’ve been called and you have the passion, talent and experience, then there should be no reason not to answer. After all, why give up the chance of a masterclass and the opportunity to collaborate with local and international music heavyweights?

Think you’re music's next big thing? Think you have the originality, material and drive that's necessary to succeed in music? Now is the time to take your chance and apply to the Elements Music Camp, armed with nothing but your own music and a solid dream for your future.
