The UK music industry contributes £5.2 billion to the economy, employing over 190,000 professionals. Start your new career by completing Higher Rhythm’s HND Music Technology course.
A successful career in the booming music industry relies on the networks you build. The wider your network is, and the more people know what you’re good at, the more work opportunities you will have.
To be able to establish your reputation as music industry professional as early as possible you therefore need to study in a place where you can develop this vital network and gain real-industry experience as an integral part of your course.
The music industry can also be complex, but the professionals who work in it are best placed to tell how it really works. The best way to develop the skills needed to succeed in the industry, is to work alongside these professionals in real industry settings and to have access to the kind of equipment real professionals use.
