The Industry Takeover Schools Tour sees us work with 150 Year 10 students from local Newham schools as we deliver a series of performances, break-out sessions, masterclasses and more in association with CMU: DIY and Universal UTalks.

Bringing the industry into the common room, we’ll deliver an overview of the music industry, detailing the wealth of opportunities available for all types of young budding creatives – often from disadvantaged backgrounds – and what can happen with hard work, sound careers advice and industry contacts.

Armed with some of the industry’s best placed talent, including speakers from CODA Agency, Virgin, Universal, Spotify and producers the Heavytrackerz, we’ll present ‘How To Steal My Job’ Q&As, career case studies and top tips sessions, coupled with workshops on Ableton production, digital marketing, radio production, songwriting and vocals.

Plus, expect ‘In Conversation With…’ interviews, very special guests and live performances.

Our work here opens important progression routes and apprenticeships for young talent with the likes of the NewVic, UEL and our own Urban Artist School summer school.

Other delivery partners include Diva, UK Music and University of East London (UEL/Birkbeck).
