ConnectsMusic is excited to share with you the new World Heart Beat Academy’s venture EMERGE – free industry training and talent development programme for aspiring young musicians and producers aged 16-25.
EMERGE brings people together and allows them to explore their creativity and interests in a non-judgemental & comfortable space.
-Ava Joseph, Young Producer
World Heart Beat presents EMERGE, a new industry training and talent development programme aimed at supporting young people looking to start a career in the music industry. The FREE 8-week training programme is open to 16-25 year olds living, working or studying in south London.
It is an opportunity for young musicians to develop their career in music through free training sessions, masterclasses, mentoring and paid placements with high profile industry partners. Participants learn music production and take part in sessions exploring key topics such as ‘working as an independent artist’ and ‘building your community’; gaining a strong understanding of career options within the industry and progression pathways.
More about four key themes:
Masterclasses are led by professional artists and producers who are passionate about nurturing the next generation of talent. Last season EMERGE welcomed rapper and social activist Eerf Evil, Jazz FM Breakthrough Act 2021 winner Jas Kayser, singer/songwriter Kali Claire and South London based artist and producer BINA to share their knowledge.
EMERGE’s success lies in its youth-led approach. The training is designed by young musicians for young musicians, ensuring it’s relevant to their needs and interests. As a result, participants leave the course feeling both knowledgeable and inspired!
– Kim Morrison, Head of Programmes
The programme builds on the professional training delivered to emerging musicians through World Heart Beat’s successful Music Leaders programme and represents a strong commitment to addressing the systemic barriers that young people from diverse and disadvantaged backgrounds face. EMERGE is a youth-led programme, co-designed and delivered by World Heart Beat’s young producers and industry professionals. The approach allows young people to tailor the training to their interests and explore roles and opportunities that most closely align with their skill set and interests, giving them the strongest chance of developing a sustainable career.
