Positive Labels Birmingham is a partnership project with professional recording facility SongLab in Birmingham.
This project gives talented young musicians the opportunity to develop a range of skills in professionally-focused musical activities that feature weekly sessions and monthly masterclasses from industry professionals.
These activities are designed to improve their individual musicianship, and also gain an understanding of the music industry, looking at song writing, arrangement, production, presentation, performance, publicity and marketing. In developing their skills, the participants come to understand the value of teamwork and co-operation, whilst becoming more resilient to the demands of adult life.
Positive Labels also provides accreditation in the form of AQA Unit Awards, allowing participants to build a portfolio of evidence-based learning.
