We educate, motivate and inspire our students through a unique provision of quality content, knowledge and contextualised learning through unrivalled access to the industry.

WHY CHOOSE THE NOTTING HILL ACADEMY OF MUSIC?

The music industry is constantly evolving and reactive. We recognised that current music education doesn’t reflect or serve the needs of the ever-changing music industry. Our courses have been specifically designed and tailored to meet the needs of the music industry, meaning that at the Academy, we offer what other providers don’t. Our courses have been designed by the senior management team, who have been involved in both the music industry and music education for over twenty years.

During your course, your tutors will provide flexibility and adaptability tailored to your individual needs. Offering professional advice, mentoring and industry connections. Our tutors are also constantly monitoring new industry ‘game changers’ that will change the shape and future of the industry, and will bring this information and insight to you in the classroom.

Our students are the most important people we work with, whether you’re an artist, songwriter, producer, or want to own a label or a management company, we are here to help and guide you to realise your career goals.

Our courses are vocational, showing you where the current revenue streams are and how you can become an asset to employers and the music industry.

NOTTING HILL ARTS CLUB

The Notting Hill Arts Club is an historical centre for up and coming musicians, song writers and entrepreneurs. From George Ezra’s first London show to the forming of the Libertines. For the past twenty one years, the club has celebrated contemporary British art and culture. Developing artists have met, played and discussed how they would change the future and have then gone on to make history. The supportive and creative atmosphere has promoted a culture where ideas and music have the chance to grow and develop. Given its history, the club naturally paves the way for an exciting future for the Notting Hill Academy of Music and its students.
