BBC Introducing Live 2018

Monday 07 January 2019

In November, several of our year 10 students were invited to BBC Music Introducing LIVE 18' an event where up to 15,000 budding musicians met industry talent at London’s iconic Tobacco Dock. This day centres around discovering and supporting new music and thinking about post-16 music pathways.

There was a wide range of inspiring masterclasses and interactive sessions, practical workshops. Our students also heard from some really high profile speakers from across the industry and took part in their Q&A sessions. These industry experts ranged from the recorded, live, broadcast and digital sectors and the were able to share their insider knowledge. Students got to use up to date equipment, instruments and software - some were also interviewed for the Live show!

In addition to this, there was also the opportunity for visitors to have their music heard in the A&R Feedback Centre as well as gain practical advice from leading BBC sound engineer experts in the BBC Recording Studio Zone which was really useful.

We have some excellent musicians, singers and producers at APA and we hope that the day provided some invaluable support as they take the next steps in their careers.
