Level 3 Music Performance (with Sage Gateshead)

Exclusively delivered in partnership with the SAGE Gateshead, this is the only course in the region to provide training in a world-class venue with leading industry professionals.

Study level 3 music with us and you will be surrounded by internationally acclaimed artists, world class music practitioners, a skilled technical team and expert teachers. You will live and breathe what it is like to be a professional musician or producer, enjoying a learning experience that will put you at the top of any employer’s list and give you the best opportunities to kick start your career.

You will benefit from instrumental lessons every week, delivered by leading music practitioners from Sage Gateshead. You will study graded music theory exams and have the opportunity to study graded instrumental syllabus (RGT, LCM and Rock School).

You will take part in ensemble workshops every week and perform gigs in professional cultural venues at least three times a year.

Your lessons will be both practical and theoretical culminating in weekly live venue performance workshops in our professional theatre and other local venues. You course will be littered with industry seminars and workshops throughout the year from local music businesses such as Generator, who are at the forefront of emerging music.

To compliment your learning you will also have opportunity to perform throughout the course to live audiences across multiple local venues, developing your skills in the real working environment exposing you to the industry and giving you the employment edge. You will do this in collaboration with the Music Tech and Production Arts Students.

We aim to make you ‘work and HE ready’, so you are as comfortable jumping into a career in music as you would be going to Higher Education. So as well as developing your practical vocation skills you will work on strengthening vital personal skills like problem solving, research, planning, presentation and reflection/evaluation.
