About Leeds College of Music
Leeds College of Music is the largest music conservatoire in the UK and the only one to offer Further and Higher Education courses in Classical Music, Jazz, Popular Music and Music Production. The conservatoire was founded in 1965 and teaching started on the first Jazz degree in the UK soon after. It continued its progressive approach to music education by offering the first UK conservatoire degree in Pop in 2005, and the only European conservatoire degree in Music Business in 2014.
Leeds College of Music also runs numerous short courses for adults and children, and a Saturday Music School for children aged 9-17. Facilities include 7 industry-standard recording studios, 3 mixing rooms, 6 Mac Labs (we’re an Apple Authorised Training Centre), and a 350-seat concert hall and 120-seat Recital Room.
A host of industry professionals visit the conservatoire each year to deliver workshops and masterclasses for students, and public performances come from internationally-acclaimed artists, as well as the conservatoire’s ensembles.
