What is special about this course?
This course will provide the solid foundation you need to be a successful musician. You'll perform and record live music and learn how to best promote your band. You'll also learn about theory and history of music and develop skills on your chosen instrument. Whether you are planning a career in the modern music industry or simply feel you would benefit from a year spent in an exciting musical environment, this course will set you on the right track.
There are no formal entry requirements.
You will be asked to attend an interview which will give you the opportunity to see our campus, meet staff and learn more about the course. The interview process is also about demonstrating the resources and learning opportunities we offer to support your development.
As part of the interview process, you will be asked to perform a piece on your instrument. We suggest you pick a piece that demonstrates your skillset on your instrument or voice, and for writers, this can be an original composition or song.
The instruments we currently accept for NC are vocals; guitar; bass; drums; keyboards and/or piano.
