Virtual Open Day
Meet the Music Tutors today
You can join a Live Q&A Session by clicking the buttons above. This will take you through to a Microsoft Teams meeting where you can join attendees in asking questions to the tutors. If you do not wish to have your camera or microphone on, that’s no problem! You will still be able to ask questions via the Microsoft Teams chat once you are in the session. If you are joining with a Smartphone or Tablet then please ensure you have Microsoft Teams downloaded. If you are having any issues joining the tutor sessions, then please let us know via the live chat function on this page.
Get Creative with our Facilities
One of the key differences between studying at College and studying at school is our first class facilities. Our Music Performance students benefit from workshops and brand new equipment, mirroring the industry today. From our recording equipment to our fully-stocked soundproof rehearsal rooms, come and perfect your performance skills, from composition to stage presence.
You may have noticed that we offer Intermediate and Advanced courses for most areas.
Intermediate courses are equivalent to Level 1/2 and are for those people who need a bit of extra focus and support in order to learn more about their specific interest, get familiar with tools and equipment and may need to resit GCSE English and/or maths.
Advanced courses are equivalent to Level 3 and are ideal for people who have a good grasp of their interest, but need to focus on developing their technical skill and concentrate on growing their skills and employability, learning how to turn their talent into a career.
Come to one of our In Person Open Events
If you do not wish to join a Live Q&A session today, then please join us at our next in person Open Event where you can meet the tutors and tour the facilities.
