    SPOTLIGHT

    DELIVERING MUSIC MAKING THROUGH A PANDEMIC

    Our music  development programme that has truly prevailed during the COVID 19 Pandemic. With over 15 aspiring young artists on board, this project took a drastic turn into the digital world during lockdown via programmes/websites such as Zoom, Charanga VIP Studios & more. Although it took much away from the practical elements of the original schedule of programming new findings, tools and resources were discovered and utilised to later strengthen the level of competency when returning to COVID Safe content creating activities. The Programme has seen amazing transformations in participant’s appreciation for music and really supported their personal development and confidence. Participants have each created 3-6-track Extended play Projects (E.P’s) of original content, developed an electronic Press Kits & Photography portfolio (EPK). 80% of participants took part in an online performance showcase and interview via the HG31 Instagram live on social media. Led by Artist / Producer Alex ‘Pressure0121’ Williams, DJ / Producer Jamaine ‘Origin8’ Brown Producer/Sound engineer Mark ‘Emvee’ James.

    “I was very shy in school before I started writing and my music, now I feel more confident in myself now and people really like my music too”

    We will be launching all the musical content and videos produced across our social media channels across the coming months!
