The Academy creates musicians. Born out of a belief that music is for everyone and developed to challenge those who disagree. We strive to commit every music lesson to enhancing, inspiring and teaching the next generation of musicians.
We teach according to individuals’ needs and desired outcomes, whether that be taking lessons as a recreational activity, passing music examinations or becoming a professional musician.
The company resides in a four storey building in the heart of Camden (London) complete with Grand Piano, Music Rooms, Dance Studios (for hire), Cafe and a state-of-the-art Recording Studio.
Through its doors walk budding young musicians, aspiring singer/songwriters and rising stars. A hub of creativity, passion and ambition – the atmosphere is electric and inspiring; an infectious place to work, learn, teach and create.
Ensembles, bands, choirs and performance troupes are the catalysts behind the musical energy of The Academy. Regular concerts and gigs take students out of the classroom and onto the stage; performance (we believe) being at the heart of every musicians’ success.
Unique to The Academy is our musicianship course, a syllabus we are championing as our piece-de-resistance – group classes which integrate an internal understanding and connection to music alongside the teaching of theoretical and technical knowledge. Those who graduate from this pioneering course will do so with the ability to understand everything they hear, compose, arrange and speak the language of music fluently.
The Academy has witnessed the inspired and passionate teaching of some of the country’s most sought after musicians and nurtured many a young musician through their musical journey. More than just providing an education, (albeit an education which challenges current preconceptions of the music institution), The Academy encourages an all-encompassing experience of the music industry.
A world behind the doors of number 15 Pratt Mews where everyone is invited to connect, learn, teach, perform, write, create and succeed together.Charged with raising the bar in the world of musical education and setting new bench marks, The Academy Team will stop at nothing to provide and achieve excellence. Expect great things from the knowledgeable, inspired and musical bunch who are driving their remarkable ethos forward.
