ACM on tour

It’s the start of a new and exciting academic year! To get the new year well and truly swinging, ACM are going On Tour again!

Last year ACM travelled around the South of England visiting Schools and Colleges. To make the event that little bit special we tookRokhsan Heydari with us, a former ACM student and emerging artist who has played on the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury ’08 and released her single “You Look At Me” and “Lately”.

Rokhsan gave live performances and shared her experiences as both a student and artist. We also gave a presentation about career opportunities in the music industry and how ACM’s courses can help students find a suitable career path.

ACM On Tour has been a huge success so far and the schools and colleges we have visited have really enjoyed it and found it very beneficial for both students and local press oportunities. It’s been a great way to promote an active interest in contemporary music to young people, encouraging them to begin playing and performing music.

We are now setting up our next tour! We will be taking Rokhsan and some new ACM artists with us for the trip! It is an opportunity you shouldn’t miss!

To book an ACM artist to come to your school please email amy@acm.ac.uk or call 01483 500861. Contact us ASAP because there are limited spaces and we know this will be a popular event!

“We’re thrilled to have this opportunity to work with the ACM as it gives our students insight and knowledge about today’s music industry.”
Paul Søgaard Music Teacher at St Peter’s School in Merrow

All our students are taught not only their chosen discipline but what it takes to build a career in the music industry. The music industry is very broad and varied with career options ranging from artists, composers, producers and publishers to managers, record label executives, A&R, marketing and press etc. We would very much like to talk to your students about career opportunities in this field and to introduce them to ACM as a possible next step.
