Nusic Academy Surgeries are something new we’ve been experimenting with since 2014, providing free expert one on one advice in areas you have told us you need assistance.

There are three types of surgeries…

  • Private surgeries. 1 on 1, private (funnily enough) conversations with experts in certain fields.
  • Advice Fair Chats – As many local entities that help you and your music (that we know of), all in one place. So ya can go and have a chat with them.
  • Private surgeries with Nusic. 1 on 1, private phone calls or face to face conversations where we will try and advise you as best we can. Email us at nusic@leftlion.co.uk for a natter.


Our next opportunity for one on one advice with industry experts will be part of our Workshop on 5th March. More deets HERE.
