Music Performance & Industry (BA Hons)

The BA (Hons) degree in Music Performance and Industry at LMA is designed to cultivate and develop you into the artist or performer you want to be!

LMA will develop our students’ musicianship skills and prepare them for work in the music industry across a variety of platforms whether you want to be part of a band, a solo performer, songwriter, composer, session musician or producer. All of this is underpinned by theory and academic study.

All LMA music staff have worked, and continue to work across the music industry, which helps to instil the discipline, training and professional standards and expectations that the industry demands once students graduate.
