The British Centre for Music & Enterprise (BCME)


We created British Centre for Music and Enterprise (BCME) because we saw a gap in what is currently being offered and taught. Our view is that existing schools just don't do enough to ensure that their students secure employment in their chosen field. Our answer is to teach each and every one of our students not only about music and musical excellence but also about entrepreneurship, about developing as a businessperson, as well as the 'how to' set up your own business.


… So that our students have all the information, training and skills to make an informed choice about their next steps and how to earn the living they want from the industry they love and how to blend the best of efforts from colleagues in the business. We help build careers not just CV's. Guitar player


We understand that our students want and need choice. In response to this we have designed our courses so that students can pick a variety of different modules ensuring they are able to create their own learning pathways building in with a high level of individuality.
