UK’s first on­line mu­sic de­gree!

Guitar Techniques - - Intro -

As­pir­ing Arc­tic Mon­keys and wannabe White Stripes across the UK are be­ing given the op­por­tu­nity to sign up to a new dig­i­tal mu­sic de­gree. De­vel­oped by Bri­tish com­pany E-MU, the de­gree is the first fully on­line mu­sic de­gree in Europe and of­fers mu­si­cians the chance to study for a full Bach­e­lor of Arts (BA) de­gree in mu­sic, for as lit­tle as £3,500 a year.

As well as pay­ing around a third of a cam­pus based de­gree, stu­dents will get one-on-one on­line tu­ition with pro mu­si­cians, song­writ­ers and man­agers who have played, pro­duced and toured with top artists. The de­gree can also be stud­ied as a four-year, part-time course. Run in part­ner­ship with Fal­mouth Univer­sity, the de­gree is the lat­est ven­ture from the founders of the Brighton In­sti­tute of Mod­ern Mu­sic (BIMM) Group: Kevin Nixon, Bruce Dickinson and Sarah Clay­man. Says Nixon: “If you look at to­day’s top talent, many of them have found suc­cess fol­low­ing con­ven­tional mu­sic ed­u­ca­tion. But the next gen­er­a­tion is faced with aca­demic choices they might not want, and prices they can’t pay. E-MU pro­vides an af­ford­able de­gree gained through world class, on­line tu­ition. The fu­ture of mu­sic is dig­i­tal and so is the fu­ture of mu­sic ed­u­ca­tion”. Visit www. emuedu.com for more info.
