Budding young musicians in Ham will be able to rehearse and record their own music at a new studio in Ham Youth Centre from next week.
The new studio with rehearsal space, professional mixing desks, drum kit, guitars, production software and DJ decks has been installed at the youth centre, thanks to funding from the London Development Agency and the Council’s Youth Opportunity Fund. This facility will be available for free for young people aged 11-19.
There will also be the opportunity for young people to complete accredited courses such as AQA and the Arts Award, where young local bands and rappers can record their own music to a near professional standard.
Cllr Christine Percival, Cabinet Member for Education, Youth and Children’s Services, said:
“This new studio is an excellent opportunity to provide local young people with an opportunity to learn how to play instruments, vocal training, writing lyrics and production, right through to artistic development and live performances."
The studio has a drop in session every Tuesday and Thursday from 4-6pm where 11 to 19 year olds can come and learn how to produce and record music.
