This music and creative industries training program offers 30 people aged between 14 and 16 a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in the music industry and unleash their creative potential.

Led by industry professionals, this program focuses on practical experience and real-world opportunities. It offers a variety of courses, masterclasses, and hands-on activities that cover different aspects of the creative process.

The program kicks off with a 5-day summer camp where participants will have the chance to reimagine classic songs owned by the renowned rights management company, Hipgnosis. Guided by experienced producer mentors, each team will create their own tracks, design artwork, develop social media campaigns, and produce videos. This collaborative process will give participants a comprehensive understanding of the music industry’s mechanics and the skills needed to bring a project to fruition.

The program’s modules encompass various disciplines, including music production, creative design, photography, film, music industry understanding, event management, and social media. These modules are tailored to equip participants with the skills and experience necessary to thrive in the music industry and the broader creative sector.

Following the summer camp, North Star 360 will host a celebration event to showcase the participants’ achievements during the boot camp. This event will also provide an opportunity for more young people to experience sample sessions with tutors and express their interest in future events.
