Wired For sound is a series of rock & pop holiday music schools, developed in conjunction with Entrust Music Service, that allow young musicians to enjoy a week of mentoring and tuition from Make Some Noise musicians and masterclass workshops from song writers, session musicians, producers and other music industry professionals.

Participants work intensely over the week and emerge with an enhanced level of knowledge about their own musicianship and abilities, as well as a firm grounding in song writing, arrangement, music production and performance.
