#Testimonials

Cloe Terrare, 2019

QMusic Connect & Songwriting Retreat participant

"This was definitely a great way for me to learn where to invest in the future knowing exactly what goes into it.

"Since the QMusic Songwriting Retreat [in 2019] I've teamed up with Paces. Hopefully will be releasing our first single as a duo very soon. Something I wouldn't have been able to do without the networking and demo's I made at the retreat so I'm just beyond grateful to QMusic for the whole experience and leg-up in the industry."

DVNA, 2018

QMusic Connect participant

"QMusic Connect has prepared me in so many ways. The first one I ever went to I learnt so much and I met so many new people that I wouldn’t have had the chance to otherwise. I was very very lucky I got my RSVP in by the skin of my teeth, I RSVP’d very late but I am so thankful I did."

Borderland State, 2019

QMusic Connect participant

"A lot of the time being a musician can be incredibly isolating process where you feel like it's you against the world. These workshops prove there are people out there who want to help and be part of the journey. Plus you just flat out learn things you wouldn't learn if it weren't for these workshops. Things that are really crucial to making music more than just a hobby."

2019 QMusic Connect participant

"These workshops were brilliant. The discussion was facilitated really well and I think everyone in the room got a lot out of each session. I only made it to two, but I'll be back next year to hopefully make all of them. Will be recommending this to all of my musician mates! Thanks QMusic."

Paris Irwin, 2019

QMusic Connect participant

"I'm a big believer in utilising the resources available to you, so in my opinion not taking advantage of great initiatives like QMusic Connect would just be unwise."

2019 QMusic Connect participant

"Thanks so much for this incredible resource! It's invaluable to be able to connect and receive this kind of support as an independent artist."
