The 15-week programme started in February as You Press hosted workshops every Tuesday evening in the Paddington Arts facility. We recruited 15 talented artists aged between 13-25, who were looking to further develop their musical skills 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 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 June 2019, the artists performed 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.
