You’ll feel part of the industry from day one. That’s because our industry connections are everywhere you turn. Each of our experienced lecturers is active within the contemporary music business. Our guest lecturers are some of the most influential people in the industry. And our legendary Masterclasses feature some of music’s most successful names.
