The London-based Institute is widely recognised as one of the UK’s leading schools of contemporary music, and provides Degree and Diploma courses to students from all over the world. For their part, Sonus Factory have gained a great reputation as the first contemporary music school in Italy, and provide Italian students with teaching and learning opportunities inspired by the English and American musical traditions in an extremely creative environment. Operating from specialised facilities in Rome, Sonus Factory already offers a range of accredited courses and count on an experienced and passionate faculty of qualified teachers.
The partnership will initially see the Institute assisting Sonus Factory in the development of a new fully-accredited one year programme of study with progression options into the Institute’s degree courses in London. However, the longer terms plans for the partnership include the delivery by Sonus Factory of selected Institute courses directly in Italy.
Institute Director Pete Whittard commented:
“With over 25 years of experience in developing and delivering courses and training of the highest quality in the UK, the Institute enjoys an unequalled reputation in the world of contemporary music education. We have long attracted students from all over the world to our centre in London; however, this is the first time that we have established a formal partnership with an international school with a view to use the Institute’s experience and capability to support students in a different country.
We are delighted to be working in this regard with Sonus Factory, as they clearly share our own values and philosophy. We look forward to helping provide students with access to the range and level of professional training that students in the UK have enjoyed for many years.”
Further announcements, including a fantastic scholarship programme for students to study in London, regarding this partnership will be made in due course. For more information contact us directly:
