Yes that’s right british duo Chase & Status have announced that they will be opening a school to support and teach kids who have a desire to learn about dubstep and music. The school will be completely free and located in East London; it will focus on students between the age 0f 16-19 and will mainly cover music technology and dubstep but will not forgo the core materials such as math and english.
Will Kennard, more famously known as Status tells us a bit more about his reason for this project:
“I came across some incredibly talented kids who did not know how good they were at music. They did not really progress to the next level and realise their ambitions. These kids were probably more talented than I was, yet here I am succeeding in the music industry. Why aren’t they?”
Will goes on to say that his teacher brother heavily influenced his desire to create a good environment for kids to learn what they loved. The program and school are heavily supported by none other than the Brit School which housed talents such as Amy Winehouse and Adele.
