Music and Performing Arts

We’re pretty good at music in Sheffield aren’t we?! I mean, let’s reel off a few names from the top of our heads; Arctic Monkeys, Pulp, The Human League, Def Leppard, Reverend and The Makers. And do we need to start telling you about our TV and film heritage too? Sean Bean, This is England….. You get the picture.

We’re pretty good at it here at the college too. In fact, some of our previous students have gone onto make real careers within the music and tv/film industries – from Band Managers through to Session Musicians, Musical Theatre, Actors, Directors and Producers for chart hits. Or maybe you prefer the backstage side of things such as Lighting or Sound Engineers? Whatever area you want to get into, we’ve got the course for you.

And so that we keep Sheffield’s music scene alive and well, we’ve just invested millions of pounds in some impressive music rehearsal studios, dance studios, recording studios, and top rate equipment. Just for you! We’ve also got performance theatres and even a TV studio too!

Our tutors all have real experience out in industry. They will help prepare you for the career you want or the next step in your life. They’ll help you build your skills and get experience in areas that will really help you stand out to employers or universities. After all, who’s better to learn from than someone who’s been there and done that?

We also work hard to get involved with big projects in the area and develop relationships with local employers so our students can use their time with us to get work experience and build connections.

You will get to put on a show regularly, including theatre productions and music performances – so if you love playing to an audience, get applying!
