Based in Leicester, the British Centre for Music and Enterprise (BCME) is a ground breaking new facility built with one purpose – to teach the young music lovers of today how they can shape the music industry of tomorrow. The state-of-the-art campus specialises not only in writing, performance and production of music, but also how to navigate the business behind the industry.
Offering courses that are specifically focussed on different aspects of the music business, the BCME specialise in employing tutors and mentors direct from today’s industry. The results are impressive, giving students the chance to learn directly about the contemporary, global aspects of music, and also offering direct access to placements and career opportunities.
It’s a facility that’s dialled directly into music, both artistically and systemically, to bring a rounded education which rivals the revered likes of BIMM and ACM. The aim is to deliver a life-changing, real-world relevant experience which draws on students’ passion for creativity, collaboration and – most importantly – enjoying music.
Ranging from short courses to three year degrees, BCME also offers special events and Masterclasses for those looking to boost knowledge in specific sectors of the business. There is even a chance for students to start their own record labels under the tutelage of the school, with the aim of spreading their wings independently when the time is right. It’s a truly unique and rounded opportunity for music lovers to pursue their goals in an industry that’s notoriously difficult to crack.
And (possibly) the best part? No written exams. This is all about practical application of real-world skills, and not regurgitating book learning.
