With their state-of-the-art facilities, world-class faculty and extensive connections within the music industry, ACM offers music courses that develop you to your highest potential and, most importantly, immerse you in the music industry. Their learning by doing ethos helps simplify how the industry works and produces a clear view of career paths and options. This clear and practical approach accelerates learning. The detailed exposure to all aspects of the industry as it happens (live!) reveals options and destinations, which greatly assists their students in making clear choices and building the maps they need to guide them there. Having tutors with real-life experience – such as Ace the renowned guitarist for Skunk Anansie – really adds to the overall experience. ACM also have a unique partnership with Europe’s largest independent recording facility, Metropolis Studios, that offers exclusive access to its iconic facilities to ACM students. Metropolis’ client list includes: Royal Blood, Clean Bandit, Lorde, Lana Del Rey, Elton John, Ed Sheeran, Madonna, Kylie, Amy Winehouse, The Rolling Stones, Usher, Adele, Led Zeppelin, Beyonce, The Clash, Jimmy Page, Rihanna, Queen and Michael Jackson.
ACM encapsulates the industry from end to end, where today and tomorrow’s music is written, produced, mixed, mastered, distributed, marketed and published. Our students do not learn from a book but by hands-on experience of the business of music. It is the intrinsic, living, breathing connection between ACM and Metropolis that gives our students this unique perspective and opportunity.
