About

History

Founded in 1994, and having welcomed over 5000 students onto courses in popular music, production and music business courses over the years, the Academy of Music & Sound is celebrating its 25th Anniversary in July 2019. An all new Higher Education course ‘Music & Sound’ has been developed to coincide with the celebrations, applications open now. 

Education

We offer one of the most flexible undergraduate music pathways in the UK, inviting applicants from a broad diversity of musical disciplines such as guitar players, bass players, singers, songwriters, drummers, multi-media composers, TV, film and gaming music composers.  The choices embedded into the programme mean students leave as independent, multi-skilled music practitioners, ready to work in the modern music industry.

Services

Student services

We take the wellbeing of our students extremely seriously. Individuals in the creative industries put their emotions and vulnerability up for judgement; we understand the impact and anxiety this can have on confidence. We help and support our students, not just in their study and career, but also personal life, to develop the tools to cope and channel these pressures.
