It’s clear that if you are reading this, the musical bug has in some way bitten you. We know what it’s like to have dreams and ambitions; you love music more than anything yet you’re not sure how to make your dreams and ambitions a reality. We know, we’ve been there ourselves!
The Academy of Music & Sound will show you that learning to play your instrument doesn’t mean you have to leave your creativity, passion and joy for your music at the classroom door. In fact, we will positively encourage you to bring it with you. Add all the new styles, techniques and technology that we will offer you throughout your time with us and you won’t want to go home.
In addition to your learning in the classroom, we have also identified the need to bring the music industry to you. On our Higher Education courses, you will have access to our pioneering enrichment program. On this program you will be able to attend masterclasses from leading industry professionals, attend music industry events and conferences and be able to participate in our industry mentor scheme- where you can liaise with a successful music industry mentor to help you get your career off the ground!
Our job at the Academy of Music & Sound is simple: To give you the information and tools you need to make your dreams a reality. Your job is to realise your potential, show a commitment and enthusiasm to learn; and practise, practise, practise.
