WHAT WE DO

Workshop & Masterclasses

At NMA, we believe not only in giving students the best education in a one on one setting, but also giving our students the opportunity to learn from some of the best in the world in the music industry. This gives our students the chance to gain valuable insight into how some of the best musicians, artists and industry experts think, approach music and master their art.Having insight from multiple artists and industry experts outside of your regular one on one teacher means that students are able to form their own personal style, method and opinions on music. These sorts of opportunities are usually only available through universities or prestigious colleges, however at National Music Academy our international connections to the music industry allow us to bring these opportunities into Newcastle for our students.
