Capital XTRA’s Music Potential is Back!

Capital XTRA’s Music Potential 2018 is back! This year we are in London, Birmingham and Belfast!

Music Potential 2017 was HUGE! Some of our graduates went from being door-to-door salesmen to launching a creative social enterprise, with others gaining interest from the UK’s most established record companies! The good news is we are back again, bigger and better than ever, inspiring and developing your musical skills, talent and employability prospects!

We’re calling for all 18 to 25-year-olds living in or close to  London, Birmingham and Belfast and currently not in education, employment or training, to sign up and get your creative career started!

Music Potential will offer you the chance to take part in creative workshops, work experience opportunities, one to one industry mentoring, employability training, plus, the prospect of displaying your talent at the Music Potential UNLEASHED showcase at the renowned music venue, KOKO.

There are four stages of Capital XTRA’s Music Potential which will move you a step closer to a career in the music industry:

Bootcamp – This is a one-day session offering a taste of what Music Potential has to offer.

MPX – This is a 10-day course which will help you develop around your chosen area of the music industry, develop your employability skills and work towards an accreditation. The MPX courses on offer are Songwriting & Performance, Radio Production, Music Production and Music Business.

MP Networks – After MPX, you’ll be offered work experience placements and opportunities to be mentored by music industry professionals. All of these opportunities are available exclusively to Music Potential!

UNLEASHED – Our final showcase, hosted by Capital XTRA’s presenters with the hottest UK acts in Hip-Hop, Grime & R&B performing alongside our Music Potential talent. If you’re not a performer, you can offer some support from behind the scenes.

So if you’re based in or close to London, Birmingham or Belfast, aged between 18 and 25, not currently working or studying and have a passion for the music and the creative industries, Music Potential 2018 is where you need to be!

Registration is now CLOSED!

UPDATE: Our friends RollaDome have joined the project! If you are passionate about the digital side of the music industry, then learning about creative media is for you. You will learn all about social media marketing, photography and videography from some of the best in the industry.

This is only available to our London applicants. If you have already applied to the project but would like to gain skills from creative media, no need to apply again, our team will be in touch to ask you over the phone.
