On either of our two year courses, you will finish with a recognised qualification and a direct route to a full Honours Degree, with an additional top up year should you want to!

Our Foundation Degrees are accredited by Nottingham Trent University. Not only do they oversee the curriculum and teaching of said courses, but you also get exclusive access to their centres and Student Union, including use of their dedicated facilities and library.

Learn composition and musical arrangements, music theory, performance techniques, essential recording skills for musicians, industry trends and development as an instrumentalist.  

We’ll work with you to build your confidence, communication, creativity and independence to ensure you’re equipped professionally and personally for the future.
