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.

City of Sounds Festival

This summer, we bid a fond farewell to the Adrian Boult Hall with a unique festival celebrating its role as one of Birmingham’s premier concert halls. It has been a home to many-world class musicians and has also been central to the cultural fabric of the city.

Join us as we give the hall a worthy send-off, and look towards the opening of the new Birmingham Conservatoire in September 2017.
