Many of our students take the short journey to the Royal Northern College of Music to continue their education. It’s one of the country’s most well-regarded places for musical education, and graduates regularly go on to professional entertainment careers.
If you’re keen on specialising in penning your own lyrics, you might consider Manchester Writing School. Elbow frontman Guy Garvey is the School’s Visiting Professor of Songwriting and you’ll enjoy masterclasses from Guy on the Creative Writing degree course.
A few minutes’ walk from RNCM and the Manchester Writing School is the British and Irish Modern Music Institute (BIMM). BMM degree-level courses are available in guitar, bass, drums, vocals, keyboards, music production, songwriting, and the music business.
