    Hi RowenaQS,

    If you're looking to pursue a degree in music at a specialist music school, could I introduce you to Echo Factory?

    Built and run by musicians for musicians, Echo Factory delivers practical music industry-focused degrees in BMus(Hons) Contemporary Music Performance (COURSE CODE: W315) and BA (Hons) Music Business (COURSE CODE: W375).

    We keep our course fees really accessible (£6165 if you're joining in 2019) and offer our students significant opportunities to collaborate, stretch their creativity and get involved in the local music scene whilst simultaneously developing their ability to navigate the complexities of the modern music industry.

    We also make sure to keep our class sizes small to allow our staff to personalise each of our students' learning to support their individual career aspirations to help you master your skills and knowledge of how the music industry really works.

    Alongside rigorous training in your chosen instrument across multiple contemporary genres; when studying with us, you will also be supported in gaining the skills and knowledge of music production, marketing techniques, digital techniques and music management as well as how to write for different contexts and audiences - all of which will underpin your understanding of the industry so that you can draw on multiple income streams as you launch and develop your career.

    We also support students in gaining real-world experience throughout their degree so that you are able to develop your network and build your portfolio during your studies. This could include anything from helping you find performance opportunities to writing for local music magazines, reviewing local gigs and interviewing musicians; getting to know local producers and music industry professionals, or gaining work experience in one of the many music organisations that are based in the Midlands - PPL PRS Ltd (new joint venture between the UK's two music licensing societies, PPL and PRS for Music), for example, is based just 5 mins walk from our premises, and we have a great relationship with Blackstar Amps.

    If you have any questions about studying at Echo Factory or about how best to launch your career within the music industry, please feel free to get in touch with our team for unbiased, practical support. You can reach us either by calling 0116 253 5657 or by emailing us at [email protected].

    All the best,
    Ashley

    What are your predicted grades like and what kind of music are you hoping to study? If you are thinking of Oxford's course and have any questions, I can probably have a go at answering. Been a while since I was there but things don't change fast in that place :lol:
