    I had an incredible experience. The staff have so much to offer and cover so many different areas of music.

    Luke Glazewski, Graduate 2019

    The course taught me what it means to be a producer and engineer in the industry, I learned things I couldn’t have learned anywhere else.

    Marta Di Nozzi, Graduate 2019

    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!
