“We’ve had the pleasure of teaching some of the U.K.’s most prominent musicians and producers, including Fraser T. Smith, who won a Grammy award with Adele,” says Senior Director of Marketing, Jana Jackson. “Our goal with this U.K. endeavour is to connect with current and prospective students, as well as potential partners, to help us showcase our online school and how we can positively impact U.K. musician’s careers.”
