Been an incredibly productive and busy period for us all at the Amy Winehouse Foundation. Our latest cohort of 16 talented young musicians and artists have just completed the Amy’s Yard 16 week Master Class program.
One of the Amy Winehouse Foundations’ main areas of focus is ‘to support the personal development of disadvantaged young people through music’. Since the Foundation began we have met countless young people with immense talent who are simply held back by not being able to access professional studio time due to the costs and lack of provision. The Foundation therefore decided to develop Amy’s very own studio and share it with some of the young people from the partner organisations we work with.
Over the last two years the programme has grown and developed, and working with the young people taking part we have evaluated its effectiveness and shaped its growth according to what they tell us they need. Amy’s Yard is a 14-week programme that supports talented young people to gain the confidence and necessary skills to enable them to become self-sustaining music artists.
Throughout the programme participants work in Amy’s own studio one to one with a professional producer to nurture their talent, and learn every step of making a vocal recording including; making the beats, recording vocals and mixing the track before it gets mastered.
Participants also attend a series of Master Classes delivered by current industry professionals from companies such as Island Records, Metropolis Music and MTV, providing them with the information and knowledge they will need to manage themselves as performance artists.
The Foundation is now a Registered AQA Centre meaning all participants will attain AQA Accredited Certification on completion of the programme in the areas of; Music Business, Artist Development and Transferable Skills.
Every young person engaged in our studio is referred by one of our partner organisations including The Roundhouse, Key Changes, New Horizon and Pilion Trust, who all work with vulnerable young people facing a variety of complex needs such as homelessness, mental health issues, unemployment or a history of offending.
If you are an organisation working with talented young people and you feel they are ready for this next step then please get in touch!
