Welcome to our #SongComp2017

This is an opportunity for young musicians across London. If you’re aged between 11-18 years old, enter our competition and you could win a free recording session, an Orbitsound ONE P70 wireless speaker and the chance to have your song played on Reece Parkinson’s show on Reprezent Radio, Saturdays (12-3pm).

The competition closed on May 31st. Listen to the final 5 here.

Our judges include a panel of industry professionals from Atlantic Records, Reprezent Radio, I Luv Live and Orbitsound, who will choose the winner and 4 runners-up. There will also be a chance for the winner and runners-up to perform their song at our summer showcase on July 5th.


5 Things to remember:

– The song must be an original

– Applicants will need to submit their lyrics. The song must include both lyrics and music.

We can’t wait to hear your tracks!

“I got my acceptance letter to the Brit School yesterday and I will be starting the music strand as of the next academic year! The School Ground Sounds showcase not only gave me belief and confidence in myself but it also proved to the teachers at my audition what I was capable of accomplishing. Thank you for giving me the chance to proudly say how well I did in your Showcase.”  – Romy (2nd Place in our 2016 competition).
