Rockschool Music isn’t just a vocation, it is a passion which you will have full reign to explore in our state-of-the-art facilities. Music workshops, live performances and Q&A sessions with successful musicians will give you an insight into the industry. Visits to Westend musicals, BBC Broadcasting House and the World Skills showcase in Birmingham will put you at the heart of the music scene.

The course explores all aspects of the industry from performance techniques, music technology, composition and industry studies. Live performance, digital production and recording are at the core of what you do, as well as sound mixing and music promotion. Theoretical aspects covered include application of harmony, understanding musical influences and the development of musical instruments.

Whether you aspire to be centre stage, or are looking to work behind the scenes, this course will equip you with necessary skills to succeed in this fascinating and thriving industry.

Level 2 Music learner and Pianist, Kate Cheung, is part of the band Abandoned. She said: “After leaving Humberston Academy I knew I wanted to study music. The music course and facilities here are really good. I’ve been playing the piano since I was seven but I’m still a little nervous and excited about performing with the band.

“I’m going to be studying the Level 3 next and then I want to go on to University to study Music and hopefully one day work as a Music Producer.”
