You don’t have to be a trained musician to make music. A lot of popular music today is homemade, using software. All you really need is a computer, a creative mind and a good ear for what works.
Try out your own ideas
Write a song or an instrumental track and record it using a basic app or some more sophisticated software. Share your work with friends. Your idea can be as simple or as complex as you like. Don’t worry about making everything perfect, just play around and have fun.

Tons of artists, including Billie Eilish, Bon Iver, Calvin Harris, Daniel Bedingfield and even Bruce Springsteen have released records that were (at least partially) recorded in home studios. Eilish and other stars like Arctic Monkeys started out by sharing their songs online. Do the same using #sheffieldmakesmusic
