About Academy of Contemporary Music

ACM was founded 20 years ago by Phil Brookes on a single, fundamental principle: an absolute passion for delivering outstanding contemporary music education. In that time, our passion has not changed, and like some of you thinking about University or College for the first time, we've really come of age.

Whether you'd like to focus on music performance, songwriting, production or business, we pride ourselves on delivering an immersive music education in which we match the highest quality of teaching and learning with an unparalleled student experience.

One centre of excellence. That's us. We only invite the best of the best, and here with us in Guildford (Surrey), it's you that matters most. In this unique environment, just a 35-minute train ride away from the bright lights of London, places are extremely limited and highly sought after. The talented students who join us from all around the world share their classrooms with like-minded people who are committed to pursuing a career in music.
