Youtube Music has opened a new studio for The BRIT School, with funding from Youtube Music’s partnership with The BRIT Awards 2019 and the BRIT Trust.
The studio is designed to help young talent become industry-ready, teaching them the skills to record their music not only in audio but video too.
During the studio opening, Dia Buszman, a 17-year-old music student, performed her original music while film and media production students showcased their production skills using the brand-new facilities.
Cécile Frot-Coutaz, head of YouTube for Europe, Middle East and Africa, told M Magazine: ‘At YouTube, we believe in the importance of the world hearing from diverse voices and are committed to helping young artists get started and thrive on the platform. We are delighted to continue our partnership with The BRIT School as part of our broader programme to support the next generation of British talent.’
Stuart Worden, The BRIT School’s principal, added: ‘The BRIT School is a centre for creative content and we are delighted to now have a top facility for all the artists to access and to collaborate across art forms.’
The BRIT Trust is funded largely by proceeds raised through the annual BRIT Awards and promotes education and wellbeing through music. To date, it has distributed more than £25m to a range of progressive causes and charities, including The BRIT School, East London Arts and Music (ELAM) and music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins.
