The Rhythm Studio is teaming up with Kensington & Chelsea College to offer a Level 2 Diploma in Music Production & Business starting in September 2016. The primary focus of the course is to equip students with practical skills for a career in the modern music industry. Units include Organising A Music Event, Music Marketing & Promotion, Music Sequencing & Production, Sound Recording, Podcast Production and Remixing. You will also learn what successful music professionals are doing now, as well as look at how the industry has changed in the digital age and how it might develop in the future.
Classes take place at The Rhythm Studio’s music academy within Kensington & Chelsea College. The purpose-built facilities include a state of the art recording studio, soundproofed rehearsal rooms and an iMac suite. Regular live events take place in our own performance space, at which students have the opportunity to engineer, perform and record. We also use top London music venues for live gigs throughout the year, and our students have been invited to perform further afield at major UK festivals, including Camp Bestival to Glastonbury.
The Rhythm Studio’s teaching team is made up of active music industry professionals. You will be taught by gigging musicians, songwriters, producers and engineers. Our school also has strong links within the music industry, from radio stations and record labels, to world famous performers, producers and DJs. Our patrons include Coldplay lead singer Chris Martin, 6Music DJ Don Letts, Primal Scream frontman Bobby Gillespie, and world renowned songwriter Guy Chambers, and former students at The Rhythm Studio include James David of 2016 UK chart-toppers Snakehips. RS Recordings, our in-house record label, allows students to experience and work with a real-life music enterprise as part of their studies.
In addition to the course units that make up your main qualification, students get assistance with Maths and English, alongside career advice and preparation for the world of work. All aspects of the course are tailored so that they are relevant to you as an emerging music professional. If you complete the course, you can progress onto a Level 3 Extended Diploma for Music Practitioners and prepare for university or apply for a job in the music industry. The course is designed especially for 16 to 18 year olds but all ages are welcome to apply.
