We don’t want to dictate your musical path. You’ll tell us where you want your music to take you. Then our teachers – all producers, composers, theorists and performers themselves – will help you find your way there.
We’ll develop your specialist skills in music production, songwriting, performance and sound design. We’ll give you the facilities and equipment to create with and the stages to perform on, and we’ll underpin all this with a thorough examination of the history, culture and business of music.
Not only will we equip you to land a music industry job, we think you may just end up being the job!
