The Grit School is a 6-week music industry crash-course. It is open to young aspiring musicians between the ages of 16-24. The Grit School is an opportunity for participants to develop their musicianship and gain honest, valuable and professional insights into the music industry.

The course consists of one practical workshop and one business seminar per week, Each hosted by industry leaders in their fields, including major and indie label representatives, music publishers, artist managers, established and professional session musicians, producers and songwriters.
