Music is influenced by the culture that it reflects and everything around it. It is also an influencer, and permeates every aspect of the world that we live in. We believe that every student needs to have a broad knowledge of the history of music and the music in society in order to inform their own performing, teaching and composing. They should finish with the tools to be able to explore any aspect of music that interests them or will inform their work as a musician, teacher, producer etc.

Tutorials give you the opportunity for interaction and to ask questions. This is done through LIVE-Online classrooms, pre-recorded tutorials or other forums where you submit questions, recordings or your other work. You get feedback from staff and at times, from other students
