The Big Music Project Launches Nationwide

Bookmark and Share

From Monday 7th April, any young person, aged between 14 and 24, hoping to carve out a career in the music industry will have the opportunity to transform their dreams into a reality, as The Big Music Project launches nationwide.

Two of the biggest names in UK music – Global Radio's Capital FM and the BPI who own the iconic BRITs brand - have joined forces with youth work charity UK Youth, to help youngsters from every corner of the UK get the transferable skills they need to take a step closer to a brighter future. The Big Music Project is supported by a £4million grant from The Big Lottery Fund.

Youngsters visiting www.thebigmusicproject.co.uk will find:
* Careers inspiration from some of the biggest names in music including Ellie Goulding, Enrique Iglesias, Example, Katy B and 5 Seconds of Summer
* Practical help and advice from people working in industries allied to music, on taking that 'next step'
* Details of The Big Music Project Live events – powered by Music Matters - taking place in Belfast, Cardiff, Glasgow and London this Autumn
* A preview of The Big Music Project Competition – powered by the Next BRIT Thing – a national music performance competition open to all genres and supported by hundreds of industry insiders
* News from some of the 100 youth club "hubs" where thousands of young Big Music Project "Champions" are already starting to do great things with music in their communities
* The On Track industry experience portal which will see thousands of young people find out about internships and work experience in creative industries.

Artists including Plan B, MNEK, Chase & Status and Capital's Marvin Humes and Pandora support the Big Music Project. The scheme aims to build confidence, create real career opportunities, and secure positive outcomes and futures using the power of music. With the reach of the BRIT Awards and the power of Capital behind the project, around 4.5 million 14-24 year olds are set to hear about the project, with tens of thousands expected to benefit.

Peter Ainsworth, Chair of the Big Lottery Fund, said "The Big Music Project is all about inspiring young people across the UK to fulfil their potential and achieve their personal goals. It is about giving them opportunities to learn some new transferable skills that could help them excel in the world of work, whether they choose a career in the music industry or decide to try something else. It is just one of a number of initiatives The Big Lottery Fund is backing that aim to empower young people to shape their own futures and to play an active role in their communities."
