Music Production and Performance
If you were born to perform, isn't it time you pushed your ambitions centre stage?
A performing arts course will sharpen up your acting, singing or dancing with both academic and performance training. You'll be amazed at your transformation under the guidance of expert tutors in our all singing, all dancing studio theatre.
As a member of The Collective, our theatre company, you'll star in challenging productions. Previous live public performances include dance and drama productions at the Battersea Arts Centre, touring and end of term shows in our own theatre
To succeed in the music business you need high quality, practical training. Luckily you'll get that with us. We use our expertise to introduce and improve specialist music recording training all the time. It's why students travel from all over the country to study music technology here.
Led by tutors with music and media industry backgrounds you'll have access to some really excellent facilities. We've got music technology and media suites with Apple Macs and PCs running Cubase SL3, Logic Audio, Pro Tools and Final Cut Pro. You will also work in digital and analogue recording studios and rehearsal studios.
