We’re very proud of our lecturers and staff here at ACM. All teaching staff are working music professionals in their own right, many with a string of hit records, tours or artists under their belts, who teach at ACM while actively engaged in various other roles in the industry.

This approach allows us to deliver a very relevant and up-to-date education, essential in an industry which is constantly changing and evolving.
