The workshop started with Cameron James and Joe Lenzie talking to the young people about their careers and their experience of the music industry so far. They also answered questions and offered advice to the young people.

“If you want something, persevere …we wanted to do the thing we loved!”

The young people then headed to the Elgar Room where Sigma showed them how to use the decks, track load, mix tracks, beat match and more!

It was then over to the young people to try out the different techniques that Sigma had taught them.
