Graduation Ceremony In Abbey Road Studios

Our 2019 Highlights

Welcome to Abbey Road Institute

Abbey Road Institute is a specialist music production school and the training ground for the next generation of music producers and sound engineers.

Our foundations are the expertise and innovation created at Abbey Road Studios and through collaboration with industry experts, we have created a professional one-year Advanced Diploma in Music Production and Sound Engineering and our new 5-month Advanced Diploma in Audio Post Production for Film and TV which launches in 2021. This summer will also see us move into and revive the historic Angel Recording Studios in Islington, near Kings Cross.

We work closely with engineers and producers to design and deliver a broad, hands-on and cutting-edge curriculum. This prepares you to launch a career in the music industry as unique as you are. What unites our students and team is a love of music and a passion to create.

You will learn from creative cutting edge producers, technical experts, business professionals and established and experienced names across the music industry. Choosing to study at Abbey Road Institute is a life-changing decision and a once in a lifetime experience. Our graduates are the future of the music and recording industry.

How we're responding to COVID- 19

As of 19 July, the UK government has lifted most restrictions in England. We are delivering our Advanced Diploma in person at our new campus at Angel Studios, with the occasional class online when needed. Our students are able to use our facilities including our studio, production rooms and workstations as part of their class or in small groups and adhering to mask-wearing when in close proximity to others.
