Musically Unorthodox (MU) provides enrichment and support for marginalised young people. It uses music and media-based activities to support their personal development. It operates from multi-media studios in Northampton.

Taster Sessions:

 MU delivers taster sessions on a session-by-session basis. They serve as an introduction to the skills and allow students to sample the programme. The 'per-session' approach helps students:

  • Identify their area of interest
  • Establish working relationships
  • Decide if the permanent program is right for them

Study Programme:

MU offers term sessions for young people who are passionate about music and film. Term sessions are for students who want to learn how to turn their creative ideas into reality. MU offers a comprehensive learning experience. It covers all aspects of the creative process. Students can write and record music or shoot and edit films.

Students have access to state-of-the-art resources, including: 

  • recording studios
  • editing suites
  • cameras
  • expert mentors

Upon enrolment, students work with a faculty member to create a bespoke study plan. It lists precise objectives and features a practical roadmap and a timeline. The study programme is flexible and operates on a term-by-term basis. It can accommodate new students each term or roll over for existing students who wish to return.

MU believe that creativity is a powerful tool for positive change. Its programme empowers young people to express themselves and create meaningful content.

MU's initial programme is non-accredited. Long-term students have the option to incorporate accreditations.
