The Notting Hill Academy of Music is proud to offer three cutting edge music courses in London that will show you where revenue streams can be found and utilised in today’s music industry and also how you can become an asset to employers. As part of our modules and units on all courses, we offer a vocational element which is vital in learning the sometimes complex aspects of actual employment in the music business. Expert lecturers who are in the business today will use their experience to deliver practical exercises as well as up-to-date information and insight to students. It is important when offering music courses in London that students are learning the processes involved in this ever-evolving field in the context of the modern day and future aspects of the music industry.

Students hoping to study and the Academy will need to demonstrate:
• Passion, honesty, integrity, commitment and a strong work ethic.
• Knowledge of the music business but also with a willingness to learn.
• An understanding of the current entertainment industry and technology.
The music industry is changing faster than ever—and expanding worldwide. You will learn how to meet the artistic management and entrepreneurial challenges of the global entertainment industry.


The Notting Hill Academy of Music genuinely prepares you for the type of work you may be carrying out after attaining your qualification. Where alternative or less thorough music courses may focus entirely on theory and classroom learning, the Notting Hill Academy of Music ensures that you will get a real taste of what performing and working in the music business is actually like. From creatively-focused aspects like Artist and Repertoire Songwriting to the complex challenges involved in being an entrepreneur within the industry; the Notting Hill Academy of Music endeavours to offer you an all-rounded chance to develop their skills and knowledge. From our long-ranging experience in working for, and with, producers, organisers, and executives within the music industry, we understand better than most organisations what employers are really looking for in new talent.


Music courses in London which focus only on one side of development – theoretical or practical – tend to produce students who do not have a wide enough array of knowledge to draw upon when they enter a career. The Notting Hill Academy of Music identified this trend early on and has since worked to produce courses which give you a critical blend of both sides of expertise.

Our lecturers, some of whom have been active in the music business for decades, understand the importance of learning and developing new skills and then actually putting them to use in real-world scenarios. With that in mind, the vocational aspects of our courses are very much emphasised. Not only will you learn music industry best practice at NHAM, you will also put it into action under experienced supervision.


There are a plethora of music courses out there to choose from – but only some of these courses genuinely prepare you for a successful career within the modern music industry. Avoid the mistake of investing your time in a course that ignores important and vital aspects of a modern music career; choose a reputable music course at the Notting Hill Academy of Music instead.

Ensure you take the time to carefully analyse the modules and units and skills taught on all course pages to guarantee that you will develop the knowledge and practical skills to advance in your chosen career path.
