We are thrilled to announce the first ever Music Gateway Scholarship has been awarded to Madison Claridge.

Chosen for his talent, dedication and passion for the music industry, Madison will have his Music Production Degree at ACM Guildford fully funded. Madison was ecstatic to have received 2017’s Music Production Scholarship, saying “I applied for the Music Gateway Scholarship at ACM because I loved the potential opportunities that it held. I am so pleased to have won and am really looking forward to the next two years studying at ACM and working with Music Gateway!”

Many worthy applications were submitted and our tutors had the tough task of creating a shortlist before our partner, Music Gateway, chose a winner.

“It was extremely tough to come up with a winner as we had so many outstanding applications. It’s really inspiring to see such a high level of dedication and creativity from a broad range of young candidates. Congratulations to our winner Madison and everyone who entered.”
Jon Skinner, CEO of Music Gateway

We are very proud to have made our unique brand of music industry education more accessible than ever this year by offering five scholarships collectively worth more than £130,000. That means that five students will graduate from ACM free from tuition fee debt every single year. We’re honoured to work with partners like Music Gateway to offer these awards to our most dedicated and passionate students.

“It’s fantastic to work with our long-term partners Music Gateway to offer this scholarship to Madison. His application was incredibly strong and I’m really looking forward to teaching him at ACM and seeing him progress with his bright future in the music industry.”
Mark Smithers, Pathway Leader for Music Production, ACM
