Our HNC in Music is the first year of our HND in Music, available as an independent qualification but designed to be followed-up with our HND. Partially funded by SAAS (Scotland), it is a 1-year course suitable for all musical disciplines and instruments. Curated and delivered by music professionals, it is available in Edinburgh and Glasgow. Both centres boast state of the art teaching & rehearsal rooms, mac suites, recording studios and a team of professional tutors. By the end of the HNC students will be qualified to start straight on our HND (+ 1 year).
Many of our students are now working in music – find out more on our alumni page. There are countless career opportunities for musicians including performing, writing and recording music, releasing music on streaming platforms, gaining a social media following, teaching, or indeed a combination of various paths to forge a multi-faceted income base. During your time with us, besides industry networking, you will gain transferable skills like communication, personal development and teamwork. You will be able to progress to study and completely a HND in Music, after the first year HNC.
