DIY Music education

At DIY, we are passionate about supporting the careers of artists and music industry aspirants.

The upheavals wrought upon the music and media industries, through disruptive technologies, have dramatically changed and increased the diversity of opportunities to be part of the entrepreneurial ‘Do It Yourself’ generation. DIY have set out to help them make career decisions through our ‘Do It Yourself’ programme. Launched in June 2018, ‘Do It Yourself’  produced an 84 page magazine with contributions from 45 members of the business and artist community about their own personal journeys.

Since then DIY has taken programmes to under represented cities, festivals, and to schools and universities and partnering with brands.

You can keep up to date with all our music education news when you subscribe to our newsletter.
