Music and Performance

Music Production

If you want to pursue a career that you love and makes going to work every day interesting and enjoyable, choosing a course with us will help you to learn more about the creative industries and how you can find your place within them.

You’ll have access to amazing facilities including: recording studios, rehearsal rooms, PC and Mac technology suites, three live music performance venues, a keyboard lab, a music technology live performance suite, DJ rooms and a piano practice room. In fact we’re the city’s most kitted-out music studio. If theatre is your passion, we’ve got a 200-seat theatre and a more intimate 80-seat studio theatre, both fully-equipped with lighting and sound. On top of that we also have three dance studios, four acting studios, a costume department, a set design studio and a construction workshop. 

You’ll have plenty of opportunity to showcase your work too, in one of our many performances. These shows are often visited by industry experts and practitioners looking for the next generation of talent. In 2017 we took this to the next level, as we were the only company from the East Midlands to perform at the National Theatre in London!
