Education and training for musicians

In the heart of England, Birmingham Conservatoire is a place where talent develops, individual creativity flourishes and successful careers begin. We educate and train musicians to the highest professional standards in solo performance, composition, chamber music, orchestral playing and jazz.

The first UK music college to have an active research programme, established in 1993, we are now an internationally recognised centre for research into composition, performance with live electronics and musicology.
