Abbey Road comes to Southbank

16 Apr 2015

Abbey Road comes to Southbank Image

The world-famous Abbey Road Studios in London has announced its first international foray, with its educational institute set to launch in Southbank in August.

Australian students with a passion for audio, music production and music business, will now have the opportunity to study under the world’s most recognised recording studio banner in the heart of the arts precinct on Sturt St.

Spanning more than 80 years, the prestigious Abbey Road Studios has been home to countless landmark recordings and pioneering advances in recording technology, encompassing work by many of the world’s most famous artists including The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Elton John and Kanye West.

The Melbourne campus will be the first to open outside of London, with additional campuses planned for other locations including Sydney, Paris, Berlin and Munich.

The institute will offer a full-time advanced diploma in music production and sound engineering course, which will be taught over 46 weeks by recognised music industry experts, producers and label executives alongside qualified lecturers.

Abbey Road Institute Australia CEO Paul Ledingham said Melbourne had been specifically targeted as the first overseas location to offer the course due to its thriving and “globally recognised” music scene.

“This is an unprecedented initiative from Abbey Road, the world’s most recognisable recording industry success story,” he said.

“We will now have the ability to bring the biggest names, brightest minds and most promising talent together for a world class educational experience that is wholly designed to meet industry needs for Australian students.”

“We hope that by offering significant opportunities for skill and career development, we will help further strengthen the city’s reputation as a globally-recognised music and cultural hub.”

The curriculum has been developed by audio educational specialists in conjunction with Abbey Road Studio engineers and offers a unique mix of theoretical and practical modules.

The course will also cover other areas of the music industry, including music business administration, artist, studio and label management.

The Abbey Road Institute is now accepting pre-registrations for a limited number of places in the August 2015 intake in Southbank, with an open day scheduled in July.
