What We Do Sample Mentoring Programme Sample Mentoring programme Are you 14-18? Into music or dance? Do you want to know what it’s like to work in the arts? Maybe you like organising things or fancy getting the hang of running an event? Maybe you like the sound of facilitating a workshop or being a musician or dancer... Introducing, SAMPLE! A brand new mentoring programme run by Paragon Music helping you connect, express and be creative – giving you the opportunity and the confidence to get a feel for a life in the arts before you leave school! SAMPLE offers a 6-month taster experience into what an arts career might be like – tailored to suit you — and guided by Paragon’s amazing team of experienced performing artists. A whopping 22 hours’ worth of personalised one-to one sessions are available to help you pursue your ambitions, meet new people and gain industry-leading knowledge – plus a behind-the-scenes understanding of how it all works, helping you to develop a clearer picture of your own creative path! How it works: Sample is delivered in blocks of 12 sessions, which will take place twice a month over a six month period. The timing and schedule will be worked out in advance with your Paragon mentor and we'll do our best to be flexible around your preferences and commitments.
