BTEC Level 3 National Music
I applied for the College’s Music course as I had heard that they had a strong music department with amazing equipment. This turned out to be true and whole lot more. I feel like I can ask our teachers anything as they are so knowledgeable and approachable. My confidence has grown on this course and my life is already changing because of my experiences here. I can’t wait to see what my second year will bring!

Guest speakers – Building on last year’s successful series of talks we have a number of guest speakers giving seminars and workshops on different aspects of the music industry.
The UK is the third largest market in the world for the sales of music and second only to the USA as a source of repertoire. The industry estimates that it is worth around £5billion a year and has an export value of £1.3 billion. The UK music scene is an eclectic international brand thriving because it is constantly changing. London provides a rich environment for musicians and is home to world class talent in every genre. With industry standard music suites, the King’s Cross Centre houses first-class facilities for you to develop your passion for music in an industry that is one of the UK’s biggest and most culturally significant creative sectors.

Charlie Round-Turner, Westminster Kingsway College Music Programme Manager, said of last year’s performance: “The majority of the performers in the show haven’t yet finished their education at College and are already showing great promise. The students had great interest from industry labels which is why they exclusively performed original tracks. We are really excited about what the Music Department can achieve with our students moving forward and look forward to the next year academic year at Westminster Kingsway College.”
