Shea says: As an ex ACM student myself I can honestly say that the ACM experience played an essential part in my success in the music industry.
I came to ACM with tunnel vision, wanting to make Drum and Bass and with no interest in anything else.
After being shown all the various key areas of the industry within my Modules I gained a huge respect and love for business, recording, engineering and sound design. I got the chance to collaborate with both my peers and tutors which ended up leading on to industry opportunities and long lasting work.
If I could give one piece of advice to prospective students it would be: Be opened minded and trust that everything you will learn is essential in building a foundation for every possible avenue In the music industry.
