The organisers of the new Dynamic Media Academy masterclasses have very generously offered a CMA members’ discount of 20% on the below courses. The first one takes place starting 27 February at the studios of Capital FM in Leeds. If you’re interested, please visit their website for more details.

February sees the launch of Dynamic Media Academy – a series of courses created by a team of radio professionals with over 30 years combined experience.
Held at various locations throughout the UK and starting at Capital FM in Yorkshire, these masterclasses intend to find the next generation of promising radio talent and help them with advice, information and experience using professional studios and equipment.
Unlike many university and college courses, Dynamic Media Academy is run by people working at the top of their game in the industry today.
Guest speakers and mentors on the first presenting masterclass include award-winning presenters and producers, such as Capital’s Simon Hirst and Andi Durrant, programme controllers from market leading stations and experienced journalists.
Radio is a notoriously hard industry to crack and as well as bolstering contact books, help in getting your foot in the door and tips on how to impress programmers, each student will leave with a polished demo, a clearer picture of the presenter they want to be and things to work on for the future.
The presenting course with Dynamic Media Academy costs £295, of which a percentage will be donated to Help A Capital Child, supporting the Teenage Cancer Trust. CMA members get 20% discount on the published price.
Closing date for applications is February 15th 2013.
