“The Grit School course was super useful – it has given me vital insights and new skills that will stay with me forever in my career in music, and I got to meet a group of some of the most lovely and talented young people in London, who I have been collaborating with since the course ended.’ – Leo, multi-instrumentalist & producer- 2017 GRIT School.
‘The best decision of my life to date. I learnt so much about the music industry, about my instrument, ensemble performance, and much more. I have grown immensely as a result of the workshops about performance technique and stage presence. I met so many musicians my own age who I will continue to create music with. It has given me self confidence and the drive to pursue my career in music.’- Mia, singer /songwriter. – 2018 GRIT School
