On 14 August 2021, London College of Creative Media is opening its doors to anybody who is thinking of a career in the industry.
The ‘Music Industry Insiders Day’ event will be hosted at LCCM’s iconic Music Box campus, where potential students can attend one of the college’s ‘Box Talks’ events with DJ Semtex – DJ, presenter, A&R and the host of ‘Hip Hop Raised Me’ podcast.
People thinking of a career in the music industry will have the opportunity to experience industry-relevant masterclasses, taster workshops in performance, song writing, music production and music business as well as receiving advice from key trade organisations including Ivors Academy, Incorporated Society of Musicians and the Music Publishers Association.
“Our Music Industry Insiders Day is perfect for those avid musicians and entrepreneurs of tomorrow who want to make their mark on the music business, whether it’s as a performer, songwriter, producer, executive or anything in between,” says JD Donovan, LCCM’s Industry Liaison. “Not only will the day be informative with workshops and tours of our state-of-the-art studios, but also fun as we welcome back people to the Music Box after 18 months!”
Attendees will meet leading LCCM staff and tutors, as well as current students and alumni, and watch the first year’s Music Business Management and Music Performance students’ joint event, ‘LCCM Worldvision,’’ which celebrates the college’s performers from around the world.
Registration and tours will start at noon with a welcome talk and then a student performance at 12.30 pm. At 1 pm, potential students can take part in a songwriting workshop or Music Business Management taster session before a Performance workshop at 2 pm. The ‘LCCM Worldvision’ performances (Level 4 student project) or Music Production drop-in session will be at 3 pm, followed by the Production workshop at 4 pm and the Box Talk with DJ Semtex at 5 pm.
Throughout the day, where COVID-19 guidelines will be in place, admissions advisers and current students will be on hand to answer questions and there will be all-day access to stalls from LCCM’s music industry partners. In addition, there will be an open-door policy in certain rooms in the Music Box and free soft drinks and snacks from the Venue Bar.
