I believe the best way to innovate in the future is to learn from the past.

Noah Dayan, Current Student

It’s a unique experience in so many ways, the location, the calibre of guest lecturers and access to Abbey Road studios for classes is pretty amazing. There aren't many places you get to record a full orchestra!

Jason O’Bryan, Lecturer

Come with an open mind and a voracious appetite to soak up the magic! Be prepared to work hard - you’ll get out what you put in.

Ian Ramage, Lecturer

There is surely no better place to be when you are studying music production and sound engineering!

Tori Sunnucks, Graduate 2016

On the first day of the course it was clear that I had found my tribe; we’re like a family, and it’s uncanny how everyone gets on creatively.
