The Academy creates musicians. Born out of a belief that music is for everyone and developed to challenge those who disagree. We strive to commit every music lesson to enhancing, inspiring and teaching the next generation of musicians.
Established in 2011.
"The British way to teach music is to put a child in a room for half an hour a week with the same teacher and push them through a graded system in order to achieve certificates which are somehow supposed to lay testament to their musical ability," she explains perplexedly. "That's all well and good if you want a musical CV but in the real world of professional musicians, certificates mean absolutely nothing."
"I secured a sizable investment and just over two years later here we are. Our ethos and methods are completely different, we don't even really consider ourselves a school. The results speak for themselves and we really are creating something spectacular."
"For me music is more than just a passion... it's a way of living"
