Elevate is for everyone, whether you’re broadening your horizons, honing your skills, delving deeper into a favourite subject, or setting yourself up for a successful career. Whichever online music course you choose, there are immersive and engaging ways to learn — think quizzes, interactive sessions, video features, optional 121 mentoring and even monthly masterclasses on your chosen subject track— as well as traditional reading and assignments. And along the way, you’ll have exclusive access to hints and tips from industry insiders, helpful study hacks, and the support and guidance of an expert. It’s a chance to really get inside an industry that interests you, and learn by doing.
