Music Potential Breakdown

Find out about what makes up Capital XTRA’s Music Potential programme

Capital XTRA’s Music Potential is a unique programme offering you the support and training you need to kick-start a career in the music industry and to unleash your potential.

Our Programme is made up of 4 key components:


Music Potential’s Bootcamp will give you a taste of what Music Potential has to offer. It gives you a chance to explore music-related skills, gain careers advice and guidance related to your chosen area over an intensive 1-day session including Q&A with a music industry panel.


A select number of people who have attended our Bootcamp session will be offered a place on MPX (or Music Potential Xperience). MPX will help you to develop your skills and understanding of your chosen area in the music industry whilst working towards a Bronze Level Arts Award. You will also get the chance to work with a team of individuals who are as passionate as you are about your chosen field and develop your employability skills such as CV building and interview preparation.


MPX students will then be offered the opportunity to embark on further development as part of MP Networks. MP Networks will have a host of mentorships and work experience opportunities exclusively as well as progression sessions. Under MP Networks you can apply for these amazing opportunities to help you build your professional network and industry experience.

Capital Xtra MP RGB Unleashed

We wrap up the Music Potential experience with our final showcase, Unleashed, hosted by our very own Capital XTRA presenters! Over the years, the hottest acts in UK Grime, Hip Hop & R&B have taken to the stage at Unleashed; including Sigma, Stormzy and Krept & Konan. Outstanding Music Potential talent will join these hot acts on stage, as well as rewarding exceptional performance among our courses. MPX graduates also offer behind the scenes support for the showcase.

Throughout the years, Music Potential has sourced and provided amazing opportunities outside of their core components; including shadowing opportunities at the biggest music companies in the UK, industry master classes at YouTube HQ, funding to help past graduates develop their careers and performance opportunities at British Summer Time in Hyde Park.
