We recently spoke with Paul Littlewood, studio manager at Higher Rhythm. I met Paul originally to find out about the outreach work that he oversees in Schools around Doncaster. I became interested after hearing about the record label he set up with the help of pupils at Coppice School, who were one of the Schools we worked with a few years ago while developing 90 Minute Music.
Paul has supported us with advice on working in the third sector and as well as being a great person to chat with, he shares our passion for improving outcomes for young people.
We have currently been developing a 12 week fully funded programme to support disadvantaged YP in the Doncaster Area. I asked Paul if he would like to get involved in supporting our sessions with a Studio visit and he was happy to oblige. We had already secured a local artist to make a guest appearance on one of the sessions and I felt that a visit to a professional environment would be beneficial from a point of showing possible career pathways, or progression through further training.
Along with providing HE courses in Music Technology, Higher Rhythm encompass Professional recording studios, A record Label, An FM Radio station; SINE FM, and offer support to artists through a network of industry contacts. We hope to collaborate on many projects in the future further adding value of expertise to the work we do.
