Welcome from Principal

Julian Lloyd Webber welcomeThe moment you arrive in Birmingham you will be at the centre of the United Kingdom in a major international city which is home to not just one but two of the world’s finest concert halls (Town Hall and Symphony Hall). Birmingham is also home to a world class orchestra (City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra) and a constant stream of visiting international soloists – many of whom come to give masterclasses at the Conservatoire.

You will soon discover that the Conservatoire’s practice rooms, studios and performance spaces are hives of activity, buzzing with the creativity and hard work of students committed to becoming professional musicians. You will also benefit from specialist conservatoire training and be treated with the individual care and attention you need as we aim to inspire you to become the very best musician you can possibly be.

In addition, we have long-established links with Birmingham's globally renowned music organisations, giving you not only the opportunity to learn from professionals elsewhere in the city but also the chance to forge connections that will be invaluable for your future.

We look forward to welcoming you to Birmingham Conservatoire.

Julian Lloyd Webber, Principal
