Announcing the BLiM Mentoring Scheme 2024!

Are you a final-year music student of colour eager to kickstart your career in the music industry? Or are you a music industry professional wanting to give key support to enthusiastic up and coming music students wanting to progress and learn how to make great headway in their chosen career path?

Look no further! BLiM is thrilled to introduce our empowering mentorship programme launching in January 2024.

About the Programme

We support the meaningful involvement of people of colour in grass roots musical tuition and activities as delivered through local Music Education Hubs.

Developing early relationships with conservatoires helps musicians to become audition ready, creates pathways into those establishments and supports their wellbeing.

Black Lives in Music wants to support mentees in realising their musical aspirations by actively providing vocational opportunities in all aspects of live music, including the areas of technical production, management, administration and performance.
