Wednesday 16th September | Masterclass with NAO

Mercury Prize nominated NAO will be our first masterclass guest of the new term. Over the course of two albums, ‘For All We Know’ and ‘Saturn’, she’s earned herself plenty of plaudits for her inspired blend of electronica and R&B. As a guest, she’s also worked with the likes of Disclosure and Mura Masa meaning she should have plenty of great insight to share during the session.
