Earlier: This summer we are seeking participants for a Music Production programme based in Wellingborough which aims to offer guidance, training and production facilities to young people from the Wellingborough area leading to a music release on the WMTH digital label. Participants do not need to have previous experience but be willing to engage in the programme which may also include some exchange visits to similar projects in the UK/Ireland. If you are interested or know of someone who may be interested please contact us ASAP deadline May 25th 2018!
Earlier: We launched our new ‘Changemaker’ Digital Label this month where we put the artist at the center of our activities and they also get all the income from the work they produce. We can do this as we ask students to undertake planning, recording, mastering and promotion as part of their studies, giving them ‘Creative Industries’ experience while assisting local artists and musicians.
