AMS online – the online university partner of Academy of Music & Sound – are now working with international educator, bestselling author and online teaching personality Ariane Cap. We are looking for bass players that might like to study with Ariane from September 2020.


At the start of 2019, AMSonline had a suite of undergraduate and postgraduate music qualifications validated for supported distance-learning with the London College of Music (University of West London). This meant that courses could be accessed worldwide with no need for conventional college lectures. The courses are delivered 100% online, so anywhere with an internet connection is now a workspace.

Ariane will be working with AMS Online from September 2020 on our online Foundation Degree in Music and Sound, where she will be taking the lead on her particular area of expertise – bass!

A Word from Ariane

“I am so happy to announce my collaboration with AMSOnline under the validation of the London College of Music/University of West London. Receive your Foundation Degree after two years studying at AMS Online with me as one of your teachers. On the Foundation degree students can choose to specialise in a certain instrument, and are entitled to an amount of support for that study by way of online video sessions. The curriculum is well rounded and practical.” 

We are delighted that Ariane is joining AMSonline, and that we are able to offer her support for students that specialise in bass guitar and wish to study our Foundation Degree Music pathway.

A bit more about the Foundation in Music & Sound

The AMS online Foundation Degree is a combined academic and vocational qualification, equivalent to two thirds of an honours degree. It is anticipated that those who complete the Foundation Degree in Music & Sound will progress to the BA (Hons) top-up Music & Sound. The course is developed to mirror the modern music industry allowing students to gain the skills to be an independent multi-skilled music practitioner, fluent with various forms of multi-media.

The programme is validated by the University of West London and is equivalent to the first 2 years of a BA(hons). Throughout the course, students will:

  • Learn skills to work in different industries, including music, advertising and gaming
  • Gain practical skills while building a portfolio of music, contacts and experience
  • Develop the ability to work freelance with several income streams
  • Time, space and the opportunity to develop your own sound and work on your material



How long is it?

This is a full time pathway (4×12 week semesters studied over 2 years).

Who is it for?

The AMS online Foundation Degree in Music & Sound is ideal if you wish to progress your studies from a BTEC Level 3 Diploma/Extended Diploma
