ACM is proud to announce the the launch of ACM Regional South Coast, its very first regional centre in the UK, in January 2012.
Located in Bournemouth, ACM Regional South Coast will take over from The Music Factory, which has been providing music education in the area since 2004. ACM Regional is the Academy’s way of ensuring more people have access to the ACM experience, but at a location more convenient to them. Full and part-time courses will be delivered within these Regional Centres utilising ACM curriculum and methodology.
Approved Regional Centres will teach up to and including Further Education study. Each course has been designed to progress naturally through to a Higher Education (HE) study level, which can be undertaken at the main ACM in Surrey; giving students a progressive study path.
“Each Regional Centre will mirror the main centre, creating an outreach programme that will allow more young people access to our award-winning music courses.”

Rob Birchall, Director of ACM Regional South Coast said, “We want our passion to spread into the community. From beginners to dedicated players, there is a course here for everyone. Musicians and aspiring musicians, young and old, have a truly fantastic opportunity to become a part of something that is globally recognised as a market leader and innovator. It is a privilege for us to be a part of this venture.”
