Ulli Schiller, Lecturer

Abbey Road Institute gives you an intensive and hands on education over 12 months. The studios are really well equipped and we had lots of studio time to let out our creativity and develop our skills.

Dirk Andre, Graduate 2018

I learned at Abbey Road Institute to give a voice or an instrument a personality. A signature sound is just the charm of a successful music production.

Lucy Pape, Graduate 2018

Come with an open mind and a voracious appetite to soak up the magic! Be prepared to work hard - you’ll get out what you put in.

On the first day of the course it was clear that I had found my tribe; we’re like a family, and it’s uncanny how everyone gets on creatively.
