Music Industry Education
ACM is all about music industry education. Students should think of themselves as being part of the music industry from day one of their time with us.
This music college in Guildford has seen the dreams and aspirations of so many students realised – careers that range from Top 40 success stories and individual business start-ups, through to industry internships leading to full time employment.
