Why Echo Factory for a Music Degree?

Careers in Music

Echo Factory takes music education out of the lecture theatre and into the real world. It’s learning at its most vibrant, creative and professional. Unlike other schools, we do not regard industry experience` as a bolt-on at the end of your course. At Echo Factory, you gain real-life experience from the outset, as part of your studies, benefiting from our established industry networks.

Learn from Seasoned Pro’s

Echo Factory tutors are seasoned industry professionals who have toured and recorded with, managed and produced many major and breakthrough artists from across the globe. Our tutors are not academics, they’re qualified practitioners, still innovating and inspiring. If you want to be prepared for a longstanding career, you must learn from those who operate at the cutting edge.


Our newly refurbished building houses our own live venue, record label, recording studio, band practice facilities, cutting edge business hub, music classrooms, lecture theatre, café and chill out zone.


Echo Factory is at the heart of Leicester’s Cultural Quarter – one of the UK’s fastest growing centres for creative businesses and new technology. With its multicultural influences and burgeoning music scene it’s the place to study, collaborate, experiment and develop.


With Echo Factory being in Leicester, you will enjoy all the benefits of a vibrant, multi-cultural and cosmopolitan city, with a thriving music scene, whilst saving £3,400 per year compared to studying in Brighton and £6,000 per year compared to London!*
