Give musicians the tools they need

The music business is incredibly competitive for our graduates.

It’s more important than ever that they have the most up-to-date industry knowledge and know-how, and the discipline and resilience they’ll need to succeed. That's why we have developed the Artist Development programme, which empowers students to make the most of their individual skills. With specialisms and contacts across the music world, our team has the expertise to help students leave the Academy as fully rounded, creative and adaptable musicians, with the tools to gain employment even in unpredictable times.

Led by singer, writer and educator Jess Walker, the Artist Development programme is unique in the conservatoire world in that it blends sessions in skills, self-knowledge and professional development with the core curriculum, customised to a student’s year and area of study.
