Curated and delivered by professionals and accredited by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA), it is available in Edinburgh and Glasgow. Both centres boast state-of-the-art teaching and rehearsal rooms, MAC suites, recording studios and a team of dedicated tutors. Our unique draw has always been supporting students with their chosen pathway.
