ACADEMY

POPULAR LINKS (direct link): Media Contacts / Workshops / School Tour / Surgeries / Resources / Reading (& video) List

We source resources, contacts plus insights direct from music industry professionals to help you develop as artists. Some of the INSPIRATIONAL TALKS we’ve caught on tape, industry contacts plus recommended reading are all on our Nusic Academy Resources page HERE.

We do events in local schools. We talk about living the dream as musicians as a catalyst to get students thinking about their dreams, be that to play Splendour, score a six at Trent Bridge or giving an Aspley granny a heart opp at QMC. More deets HERE

We host workshops, seminars & surgeries based around the music industry issues you tell us you find most challenging, featuring the speakers you tell us you want to hear from (and give you the chance to connect with them on the night via our legendary Spread The Love sessions, not as dodgy as they sound!).

Our next Nusic Academy Workshop is on ‘Releasing Music’, on 11th July. Tickets available HERE.
