UK’s first online music degree!
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.
