Studying music at College and University changed my life for the better. I couldn't do what I do now without the skills I learned at University. However, the landscape is very different now to what it was when I was studying in the 2000s.
There are so many great options available for studying music for a degree, but most DO NOT help develop the skills and contacts needed to go on to have a long term music career post graduation. For this reason, I recommend Waterbear music College in Brighton, because I know for a fact that they do.
