In partnership with the Youth Music Incubator fund, Young Thugs are offering a unique opportunity to 3 women and non-binary people in the York and surrounding areas to explore studio production and build your skills as a studio engineer and producer. Over a 6 month period you will receive ongoing one-to-one studio mentorship, personal development, and be given a chance to work on real time projects with established artists and industry professionals.

We are looking for 3 women who have a passionate interest in wanting to work in a studio environment, it’s ok if you have no qualifications or studio experience, but this opportunity does require you to have some basic music recording and production experience. Young Thugs will offer a bespoke support package for you that will cover your time as well as help with things like childcare and travel if required.

This program will give you a toolbox, live project experience and could open up opportunities for you to consider further or higher education and employment.

This opportunity is open to all women and non-binary people who are 18-25 and we really want to hear from you.
