Student testimonials

“This course has helped me gain a deeper understanding of the world of music, covering many aspects including context, production and performance.”
Malachy, current Extended Diploma student

“I believe this course has really helped me grow as a person and helped me find my favourite avenues of music and production.”
Ferris, current Extended Diploma student

"The best thing about this course is the people around you: the opportunity for collaboration means that you form great relationships with the people on your course, whether its students or teachers, there's no judgement when it comes to how weird you make it or how niche your music is!"
Lucas, current Diploma student

"The best thing this year has been producing music - with access to incredible equipment and such talented people - the potential for collaboration is really exciting. I have very much enjoyed making new friends through music and experimenting with genres and styles."
Leon, current Diploma student
