A leading radio station will offer unemployed young people a masterclass in the music industry.
Capital XTRA's Music Potential will come to Glasgow's CitizenM on June 21 and 22.
The project helps young people aged 18 to 25 who are not in employment, education or training to improve skills, develop talent and enhance their employability prospects.
With opportunities available to build skills and confidence, take part in valuable work experience, develop unique one to one professional industry mentoring relationships, apply for paid apprenticeships and gain recognised qualifications, Music Potential presents a great opportunity for young people in Scotland who are looking to start a career in music.
Confirmed workshop leaders include Stina Tweeddale (Honeyblood), Becci Wallace (University of the West of Scotland), Steg G (Sunny Govan), Tam Coyle (Miobabig Music Consultancy/DJ) and Dominic Martin (Glasgow DJ Academy), with many more still to be announced.
Robert Kilpatrick, Projects and Operations Manager, Scottish Music Industry Association (SMIA), said: “Everyone in Scotland should be given access and opportunities to be involved in music and the arts, and thanks to Capital XTRA, this project will provide valuable industry training for over 120 young people at no personal cost. Participants will be equipped with the skills required to meet the gaps and development needs of Scotland’s music industry at present, giving them the best possible chance of future employment.”
