Are you an emerging artist or musician looking to get connected to real industry, real soon? Are you a hard worker who is ready to graft for their goals? Are you aged between 16 and 24 years old and looking to learn about the music business from those who are actually doing it?

If so, we would like to invite you to our free 6-week industry course, THE GRIT SCHOOL.

What is it?

The course consists of one workshop and one seminar a week, each being lead by an active musician in the industry. Our leaders include major label representatives, Sony songwriters, music lawyers, signed artists, indie label owners, artist managers, active session musicians and world-class professional producers. The course is FREE and all sessions will happen after school hours. There will be the chance to perform to all leaders at an industry showcase event at the end of the course. This opportunity is the first of it’s kind and aims to connect high end industry with emerging artists in an organic and professional environment.

When is it?

The first cohort took place between April-May 2016. The sessions happen every Monday and Thursday evening, 16.00-18.00. We plan to repeat the course in Autumn 2017.



On May 19th 2016, we hosted a showcase at Pop Brixton. Find out more about the event here.
