Our students benefit from this wealth of experience and knowledge every day, in the classroom and on stage. The school provides practice facilities, personal tutoring, band coaching and also a wide range of clinics, showcases and gigs. During their four year Bachelor of Music programme at the Pop Department our students gain practical and intensive training, whilst gaining a comprehensive understanding of the music industry. A springboard into society.
