At ACM, we are hugely proud of our more than 10,000 graduates who are constantly breaking boundaries and making waves within the music and creative industries. They know more and work more in sustainable music careers.
Our unique blend of online, in-class and real- world enrichment programmes, included with all ACM Courses and Programmes, has helped our graduates to get to where they are now.
Our expert staff work closely with our student body to ensure that they get the absolute most out of their time at ACM. This could mean working on technique as a performer, honing presentation skills as an aspiring industry executive, or working in a world-class recording studio with an award- winning engineer to polish a production skill.
We strongly encourage collaboration amongst our students as this is where some of the best creative results are born and lifelong working relationships are formed. Our songwriting course is a perfect example of this. We cast the net wide and send our students to places as far as LA to take part in Songwriting Circles to work with the very best professionals, such as James Abrahart, award-winning writer for artists, including Usher, Justin Bieber and Rita Ora.
“Going to MIDEM was a really memorable experience! It coupled ACM’s educational and social values perfectly. I also got some great information from the talks.”

Networking and collaboration opportunities are equally open to our business students. In addition to the study of real-time, real-world industry examples brought into the classroom by our staff of industry professionals, we also take our students to the most relevant industry events.
In June 2016, we took 20 of our Music Business & Innovation students to MIDEM, an international music industry conference which takes place every year in Cannes on the Cote D’Azur. There, they were able to network with the thousands of music and creative industry professionals in attendance, as well as debate the latest industry happenings at the various conf-labs and presentations hosted by some of the biggest names in our business.
And so this is our pledge to you. We will enrich your music education experience with genuine exposure and connection to today’s industry. And you will go further because of it.
