As a nexus for music, film, animation and games development, Bristol is a big hitter on the world stage, and with acts such as Massive Attack, Portishead, Roni Size and Stanton Warriors all hailing from Bristol, it's clear that pushing boundaries is standard protocol here. Throw in a great selection of venues, and a seemingly endless list of summer festivals, and you'll quickly begin to see why the city draws in so many creative minds. As one of the three key centres for the creative industries in the UK, where better for a dBs Music centre - and Bristol has two!
We opened our first purpose-built music technology further education specialist facility in late 2012 in Bristol’s thriving Temple Enterprise Zone, a hub for creative types of all disciplines. The dBs Music Bristol FE centre is home to our range of diploma courses, and packed out with multiple studios, rehearsal rooms, teaching rooms full Apple Macs and all the latest software including Ableton, Logic Pro, and Pro Tools.
The latest addition to dBs Music is our state-of-the-art Higher Education facility in central Bristol. Equipped with 11 recording and production studios, dedicated surround sound studio, Foley room, large live rooms and exceptional lecture theatre/viewing room. It is also the only education facility in the UK to house the extraordinary API 1608 Recording Console and offers a broad and varied range ofdegree programmes.
As in all dBs centres, Bristol students are taught by a team of excellent tutors from a vast range of professional backgrounds: all backed up by a comprehensive guest lecture programme that in the recent past has included DJ Maseo (De La Soul), Alistair Lindsey (Head of Music Production for Sony Games), Matt Colton (Alchemy Mastering) and many more at the top of their game in the industry.
