Established in 2015, The RecordShop is a FREE pop-up recording studio and artist development programme for young creatives. Founded by rap artist ‘WondRWomN’. Growing up, she identified that there were not enough opportunities available for young music artists to grow and develop, so she was determined to create a platform for upcoming musicians. We run 10 week programmes where participants get the opportunity to record with us one day per week. There is also the option to perform at The RecordShow at the end of each phase. Our sessions are 2.5 hours long and within this time we offer participants a recording and mixing service, where they receive an mp3 copy of their track at the end of the session.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
We’re a Community Interest Company that gives young people the opportunity to have their first experience in a recording studio, where they can be supported along their musical journey through our workshops and mentoring. By equipping young people with music skills we build a sense of confidence within their abilities, reward them by demonstrating what they have achieved and we continue to encourage them to explore other avenues in music, such as performance, production and business. The young people we work with, would not have the opportunity to record, produce and perform their music otherwise due to socioeconomic factors, which we aim to tackle by providing a FREE service as well as work experience placements.
Steps to get it done:
- Provide young people with music skills/knowledge through our artist development programme that they can apply to their personal and/or professional lifestyles. - Provide work placements for young people interested in working within the music industry. - Assist young people with their personal, social and educational growth.
