About The Music Mill

The Music Mill studios are almost unique in combining recording studios, Radio Studios , TV studios and Dance Studios in one site and nestled in Newton Abbot, on The English Riviera. Staffed by world famous producers, radio presenters and teachers qualified to the highest Royal Academy of Dance standards, we offer a unique holiday experience that not only challenges the individual, but teaches new skills in various aspects of the media, but also teaches transferable skills in communication, team building, presentation and self confidence that can transform an individual in the workplace.

We have recorded artists like Joss Stone, Hard Fi and Luke Friend in our recording studios, produced recorded shows with Robbie Williams that we broadcast nationally on the GWR (Heart) Network. We regularly produce shows for radio stations globally and provide music and imaging that can be heard across Europe.

Importantly we have also worked with Schools, Colleges, The Royal Marines and a number of blue chip companies to teach effective communications courses. We have delivered holiday programs for learners of all ages where projects on radio and TV have formed part of school project work and contributed to university applications.

The Course

Throughout the week students will be practicing and using English in the exciting, vibrant and challenging world of the media. They will be tasked with producing their own music, presenting their work on Radio and TV and broadcasting LIVE at the end of the course so friends and family can listen wherever they are in the world and share in the success and excitement of being on the radio. You will be working with music and broadcasting professionals such as Richard Digby Smith, Rick Edwards and Joe Hellier and will have the chance to talk to other musicians and music industry professionals during your stay.

Time table for 1 week event

At the end of the course the students will be presented with a certificate and a CD/DVD of their work, which will demonstrate what they have learnt through the week.
