Started in 2007, the Baybeats Budding Bands mentorship programme is an artist development programme within Baybeats Festival that identifies independent Singapore bands with the potential to excel. It provides new bands the opportunity to gain insights, network and hone their craft through a mentorship programme with Singapore’s music veterans and an opportunity perform at Baybeats 2022!
The Baybeats Budding Writers mentorship programme has been running since 2014, building a community of writers to cover the growing Singapore music scene. Under the guidance and mentorship of Eddino Abdul Hadi and Daniel Peters, our budding writers learn more about music journalism and how to be a voice for the local music community.
The Baybeats Budding Photographers mentorship programme started in 2010 with the aim of sharpening the skills of promising young shutterbugs. Each year, six amateur photographers participate in a specially designed series of workshops and critique sessions with mentor and photographer, Aloysius Lim.
A new addition to Baybeats Budding Programmes, the Baybeats Budding Emcees mentorship programme features experienced Baybeats emcee Gordon Khoo as its mentor. Under his guidance, our budding emcees learn how to hype up crowds and host programmes like Baybeats.
