Having delivered an unparalleled music industry education experience within Guildford for over twenty-one years, helping to shape the careers of Ed Sheeran, Newton Faulkner, Amelle Berrabah, Crissie Rhodes (The Shires), Zomboy and more, The Academy of Contemporary Music (ACM) is now extremely excited to announce that it will be bringing its unique brand of education to London.

ACM London will deliver the same favourable student-to-tutor ratios that ACM Guildford has become widely known for, resulting in small classes, an unrivalled student experience and the highest quality of teaching and learning. With many prospective students expressing a wish to study in London, ACM is eager to welcome students through its doors in Clapham this September.

World class facilities from brands such as SSL, Tama and Avid will be used by the high-calibre teaching faculty (all of whom are music industry professionals there to inform and inspire) to bring the rarest of opportunities and most up to date knowledge back from the outside world into classrooms, just for ACM students.

Joining ACM London as part of the teaching faculty will be Paloma Faith’s drummer and Tama Artist, Cherisse Osei. Having performed alongside the likes of Mika and Brian Ferry, Cherisse wants to bring her experience of performing at top class venues alongside chart topping artists right to the classroom when she joins ACM London this September:

“ACM is such as great college because it has such a great energy and is just so nice to be around all these young musicians that are really excited about music, not to mention the tutors are fantastic and have had so much industry experience and they bring this into the classroom. So any musicians, I’d highly recommend that you come to ACM.”

ACM London is open for applications to commence study in September 2016 via UCAS now. More details about the courses on offer and how to apply can be found on their website.

About the author

There’s a lot of music out there - good music. At Essentially Pop our remit is that we cover music that deserves to be heard, with a particular focus on independent artists. That doesn't mean we won't cover your old favourites - rather we hope to give you some new favourites as well.

We no longer accept unpaid PR agency work. We believe the creative arts have value, and this includes writing. As always, we will write about artists who contact us - or who we contact - for free - but we can no longer work free of charge for PR agencies. We work hard, we put in a lot of hours writing, and we ask that you respect that. Contact us for our very reasonable rates.
