An innovative cutting edge music school has opened its doors to the music hopefuls of the next generation.

Echo Factory, a specialist music institution offering university degrees in professional music training, has launched in a newly refurbished building in the heart of Leicester’s Cultural Quarter.

It sits comfortably amongst other creative talking points such as the famous Curve Theatre and the renowned Phoenix Digital Arts Centre.

The grand opening on July 7th of this month featured talks from the Performing Rights Society, speeches from CEO of Echo Factory, Ajay Naik, and show stopping performances from Rhetoric Literary Society.

Ajay Naik took the stage to share a few words at the opening of Echo Factory:

“We are here to celebrate a monumental step forward at Echo Factory. We want to give the musicians of today a better chance tomorrow of succeeding within the music industry. We will nurture and work with our students and provide them with a global platform from which to grow their career in the music industry”

Echo Factory has drummed up a lot of interest around its unorthodox approach to music education which has resulted in securing influential partners such as Blackstar Amps, the PRS, the Musicians Union, the Music Producers Guild and Leicestershire’s very own Patrick Eggle Guitars.

Headed by fiercely passionate business professional and musician, Ajay Naik, Echo Factory differentiates itself from other music institutions by offering professional music education from musicians themselves.

Everything is directed towards securing longevity for students in their future careers by providing them with solid, experiential education tailored to each individual’s needs. The innovative curriculum includes the opportunity to network with industry heavyweights, be signed to or work for the in-house record label and to learn in a creative ‘real world’ environment. It is the antithesis to the corporate world many think the music industry has become a victim of.

The impressive building boasts a main auditorium with a new lighting rig and state of the art equipment which will be used to showcase the students’ talents. Echo Factory will give students the chance to expand and experiment their creativity with other like minded musicians and entrepreneurial students.

Validated by University of Wolverhampton, Echo Factory degree courses are as follows: BA (Hons) Music Business and BMus (Hons) Contemporary Music Performance.

Students who are hard working and passionate about carving a career in one of the most exciting industries in the world are invited to audition/interview on 20th August 2016. Successful applicants will go away on the day with the knowledge they will be entering a vocational course which will act as a springboard to their future career.

With Leicester still in celebrations over winning the premiership title in May, will Echo Factory continue the celebrations by producing the next global artist or director?
