From education to employment


LCCM, London’s higher education music college, is hosting Youth Jam this half-term, a free one-day interactive performance masterclass for musicians on Friday 18 February. 

Aimed at young instrumentalists aged 16 to 19, the masterclass will allow teenagers across the capital to perform on stage, network with leading session musicians and learn what it means to be a skilled instrumentalist. The event will be held in LCCM’s own venue, The Music Box, which has recently hosted the likes of Moses Boyd, Amber Run, DECO and Novelist.

The young musicians will meet at LCCM’s campus at 241 Union St, London SE1 0LR and the band masterclass will start at 10.30 a.m. Lunch will be provided with an opportunity to network between 12.00 pm and 1 pm. There will then be a tour of the Music Box, followed by a jam session before the day ends at 3 pm.

“This is a great opportunity for teenagers to get a taste of the music industry,” says LCCM’s Youth Music Officer, Evie Asio. “Not only will they have a chance to jam, but they can also pick the brains of the experts.”

Earlier this month, LCCM’s Music Box proved to be an inspiring and aspirational venue for workshops and away days for 15 Ark Scholars embarking on an exciting new music journey with the launch of the Ark ‘Inspiring Excellence’ Music Scholarship.

LCCM is the highest-ranked provider of music performance and music business degrees in the UK by student satisfaction (NSS 2019, 2020 & 2021).
