Ellen Blane and FH Krew from The Florence Hayes Projects have got through out of 12,000 auditions to this years Teen Star Competition.
Krissy and the Team at The Academy saw pure talent in these young people. Ellen, who is only 15, has just signed up to MD Records and has been busy producing her album which is almost finished, and the FH Krew have been busy learning and developing their skills with the Academy in the last 6 months. Kymani, Nile and Michelle have worked really hard on every session so we decided to put them through to as many competitions we could find so far they have won Boroughs United in Hackney and have a bright future ahead of them.
The British DJMC Academy are now back at the Florence Hayes Playground centre so anyone wanting to get involved we are there Wednesday from 4-6pm and Fridays from 4-8pm.
The Florence Hayes Adventure Playground in Fore street have created an amazing partnership with The British DJMC Academy in the last 6 months.
The Academy has built a state of the art recording studio for the Centre where it’s been kitted out with a sound booth, Macs, Mac Book Pros, the latest Pioneer CDJ’s, and over the last 6 months have engaged over 50 young people and qualified 28 of them with an AQA in songwriting and DJ skills.
The young people at the centre have learnt how to use the equipment, created an album, entered into the Hackney Empire Boroughs United competition and came first in the Best Rappers category and have shown so much dedication and passion which have left the staff feeling very proud of them.
Thanks to all the young people, staff at the Florence Hayes and tutors for making this happen!
