ACM understands not only how the music industry works today, but where it is heading tomorrow. Whether students choose to focus on music performance, songwriting, production, technical services or business management, ACM prides itself on delivering an immersive music industry education in which the highest quality of teaching and learning is matched with unparalleled student experiences. Representing every corner of the field they hope to work in, ACM is, in this way, creating a microcosm of the music industry in which its students really can work together and learn by doing.
Because of a tripartite comment to its students academic, personal and professional development, ACM students are connected to a network of top-tier industry contacts via its dedicated Industry Link department, as well as being issued with an access all areas pass to Metropolis Studios, Europe's largest independently owned recording complex. They are taught by the very best music industry professionals who are out there, doing it for real, designing new ways of working and pushing creative boundaries. Each and every day, they bring the most up to date knowledge and rarest of opportunities from the outside world back into our classrooms, only for ACM students. They are expert educators who inform and inspire. They are dual-professional leaders in their chosen field.
Through regular networking events, work placements, performance and audition opportunities, ACM students are able to showcase their knowledge and talent to music industry executives (from labels, publishers, management companies and more) and gain first-hand feedback from those in the know.
