International music producer and disc jockey Eats Everything, real name Daniel Pearce, swapped Ibiza nightlife for a Bristol classroom as he made a guest appearance at the city’s Fairfield High School. 

The globetrotting artist - who was born and still lives in Bristol - delivered a hands-on skills workshop to local music students, demonstrating new music production software recently donated to the school by Ableton.  

The visit was one of three ‘Food for Thought’ school and college lectures given by Eats Everything in the region, with the aim of inspiring a new generation of young music producers from across the Westcountry.  

It also forms part of the ‘Eats Meets West’ November tour – intimate gigs in town and cities that make up Dan’s best of the West. This includes his hometown of Wotton-Under-Edge, and a small café in Weston-Super-Mare, which was chosen after his fans voted for the seaside town in a Facebook competition. 

Eats Everything said: “With a busy touring schedule, I rarely get to spend time in the city that I love so much. Being able to meet local students today, and seeing them so inspired by music, was absolutely amazing.”  

Head of Music at Fairfield High School, Tim Roderick, added: It’s great to see artists like Dan giving back to young people. We are a proudly diverse community and school; children here see themselves as global citizens and the staff all work tirelessly to provide them with as many opportunities as possible, so it’s really special when something like this comes along.

We are extremely grateful to Ableton for donating around £10,000 worth of equipment to our school at the beginning of the year. This will transform what we are able to offer our pupils, allowing them to engage with cutting edge music-production technology.”
