Created specifically to support artists making urban music, Urban Artist School isn’t your typical music school and that’s basically the whole idea.
We believe that urban music is an art form that’s just as important as jazz and classical music, and therefore, urban music creators deserve an equal level of respect and access to opportunities.
Urban Artist School is all about nurturing creativity and experimentation. Developed by the music organisation, Urban Development who over the past 17 years have been a major player in the growth of urban music in the UK – supporting emerging artists and professionals through mentoring, work experience, access to resources, showcasing and networking.
Driven by our passion to empower artists to explore, experiment and refine their ideas and our belief that urban music has birthed some of the most groundbreaking British music over the last 30 years, Urban Artist School is a first step towards entering the industry.
