About the Industry

It forms part of our culture, our history and our future. Our courses are offered in partnership with the Hertfordshire College of Music, and delivered by professionals with real industry experience who will nurture your love of music, help you develop your talents and train you in technique, theory and performance to introduce you to the music industry.

What will I do?

With fully-equipped rehearsal studios, performance spaces and industry-standard resources, you will focus on your chosen instrument, growing your skills and learning new techniques to become a well-rounded musician. You will cover all aspects of the music industry, from learning to compose and arrange different styles of music, researching and understanding musical styles and influences, to gaining music technology and production skills. As well as developing performing and technical skills, you’ll take part in masterclasses, studio shows, regular live gigs and Q&A sessions with industry guests.

What's next?

If music is and always has been your passion, a career in it can be incredibly rewarding and enjoyable. You should be skilled in at least one instrument or vocals, and be eager to develop those skills. Dedication is key, as is the determination to pursue a career in the music industry. You must be able to work well in a team and be passionate about your chosen instrument. You don’t need to be a formally trained musician, but you do need to be able to play your instrument to a reasonable standard, or be able to demonstrate a passion for music technology and production.

Is it for me?

There is so much more to the music industry than you would think. You could go on to study a university-level qualification in music or a related subject such as music technology, songwriting, or professional music performance. Our courses focus on preparing you for work in the industry in your chosen area, or you could go into teaching your instrument. 

If you are aiming towards studying at Level 3, you will need at least four GCSEs at minimum grade 4/C, including English and Maths. However, these requirements and any others specific to the course will be discussed at interview.
