“Studying Classical Music here has been challenging in all the right ways, especially because I didn’t have my A-level qualifications in music. The teachers have worked closely with me to help with areas of music theory that I had been struggling with. A feature that I like is that there’s a module when it’s compulsory to take a work placement in the creative industries.”

“I’ve learned a lot about Contemporary Music in just a short time at Leeds Conservatoire. My main problem with the school is that it’s not very easy to get to because public transport isn’t well connected.
