The 15-week programme started in late August as You Press hosted workshops every Tuesday evening in the Paddington Arts facility. We recruited 15 talented artists aged between 16-25 who were looking to further develop their musical skill under the mentorship of Specialist Music Leaders. The participants range from a wide variety of talent including singers, rappers and producers. Each artist worked towards creating both solo and featured original music.
With the Music Leaders training them each week, the 15 young artist have been given the opportunity to further explore different aspects of music including lyricism, vocal training, production, as well as confidence and performance techniques.
On Friday 7th December 2018, the artists got to perform live in front of an audience having acquired new knowledge to make them into complete musicians. The performance took place at Rich Mix in Bethnal Green, East London.
