You will have at least one hour of one-to-one tuition per week in your Principal Study, with numerous performance opportunities. We offer a wide range of activities, events, training sessions and modules for you to hone your skill in such things as studio recording and editing techniques, self-promotion and marketing, writing CVs, making funding applications, understanding the music business and working in arts management. At the end of your third and fourth years, you submit a portfolio of materials to help prepare you for professional life after the Academy.
