The Premises Music Education Programme

Working independently behind the scenes at The Premises is a registered educational charity.

The Premises Music Education Programme is based at one of the UK’s most famous recording and rehearsal studios The Premises. Established in 1996, the charity provides a variety of training courses and workshops, giving musicians of all ages, abilities and budgets the opportunity to work and train in studios frequented by the likes of Laura Marling, Michael Kiwanuka, FKA Twigs, Emeli Sande, James Bay, Roots Manuva, Sam Smith, Stormzy and Paloma Faith to name just a few.

The charity started out by running the most successful New Deal For Musicians scheme in the country, giving a head start to many upcoming artists and now runs a series of regular workshops including a Jazz Vocal and Recording Workshop, a Songwriting and Recording Course with A-list master-class tutors and an annual Jazz Piano Summerschool.  The Charity works closely with Hackney Music Service Network and local schools including Mossbourne Academy, Stoke Newington School, Petchey Academy, Morpeth School, Bridge Academy, Cardinal Pole School and Haggerston School. One popular activity is the Saturday Voice Jam, a unique opportunity for young people to come to the studios, form vocal groups, improve their singing skills, make recordings and put on roof-raising performances.

The Premises Music Education Programme is an Arts Award Centre registered with Trinity College London, currently showing a 100% pass rate.
