The Creative Pathway with Real-World Practical Industry Connections.
ACM’s Technical Studies for Rappers and MC’s course explores every area of a rapper’s profession and artistry, centrally focused around the study of the “4 elements of rap” (lyricism, flow, delivery, and originality).
You’ll also study other key areas of the music industry, exploring how each of these aspects could play a key role in your journey as an artist. These include: production skills & performance technology, the basics of music theory and beyond, artistic identity and brand, songwriting excellence and how to captivate audiences through effective performance. Students will also gain vital music business skills and knowledge.Download brochure
All students on the Rap & MC Pathway must study the following modules in addition to the mandatory modules of the Music Industry Practice programme.
Over the last 20 years we’ve learnt that there are some things that every music industry professional needs to know about. Things such as copyright, the pseudo-currency of the music industry, who the key players are and how the various sectors of artist management, records, publishing and live work and are changing. That’s why our Music Industry Practice programme includes a small number mandatory modules that we believe everyone should study.
Credit-bearing elective modules are a requirement of your qualification. Students must choose 2 from the indicative list below.
The final module selection will be available at course induction where you can select modules which will work in tandem with your core timetable.
Zero-credit elective modules (subject to availability) have no bearing on or requirement in your qualification, they are purely optional. We recommend that students study 2 of these modules, but there is no minimum or maximum stipulation.
Our Foundation Year is for those people who haven’t taken a traditional route through education or the working world and, having spoken with our teams, determine that they would benefit from an additional year of study with us at the start of their programme.
In the Foundation year students will complete the eight modules below alongside academic skills training.
On successful completion of the Foundation Year students will progress onto the relevant route of the accelerated 2-year programme.
