UMT is split into 3 main strands:
12-week course for aspiring DJs and producers.
Learn how to master turntables and CDJs, create your own tracks and put on your own event. UMT:BEATS takes place in Newcastle Arts Centre every Tuesday and Thursday between 4-8pm.
12 week course (25 hrs) for young vocalists, rappers, MCs and songwriters. One-to-one contact time with established regional producers to develop your style and skills. The producer will provide the beats, you provide the lyrics and together you will create a new track. UMT:VOX will take place in the studios of established regional producers across Newcastle.
A week-long course held in the half term-breaks for 11-24 year olds.
There will be 5 courses per year, region wide to give young musicians the opportunity to take part in an intensive course of expert music training (instrumental, vocal, percussion, music technology, DJing and stagecraft).
