You will be encouraged to get involved in the local music scene and supported in finding valuable work experience during the course. Past placements have included independent Southampton venues such as The Joiners, Talking Heads, Avondale House and Unit, giving students fantastic opportunities to perform and engage with the local industry. Southampton is a fantastic city for live music, and has many venues to get involved in.
Further support is offered through our Solent Music organisation, providing work experience opportunities at summer festivals, local venues and with local music organisations. You’ll also have a chance to join our Solent Creatives freelance agency, working on real-world briefs from commercial clients.
