Find out more about the TEF.

We believe we’ve designed the ideal course for any performer, songwriter or composer who wants to work in music. There’s room for everyone with creative ideas on our course, even if you haven’t gained a formal music qualification. We’re interested in anyone who feels compelled to make music in some way. We don’t want to dictate your musical path. You’ll tell us where you want your music to take you. Then our teachers – all producers, composers, theorists and performers themselves – will help you find your way there. We’ll develop your specialist skills in music production, songwriting, performance and sound design. We’ll give you the facilities and equipment to create with and the stages to perform on, and we’ll underpin all this with a thorough examination of the history, culture and business of music. Not only will we equip you to land a music industry job, we think you may just end up being the job!
