To all the modern musicians,

We understand you – the musician; the creative, adventurous, daring, dreamer, seer and one of a kind, immersed in music 24/7. You love it so much that you get lost in creativity where outsiders often struggle to see the magic inside your world.

Your dedication to perfect your craft is an undeniable force that drives you consistently to do what you love because you see the impact it has on your fans and the world around you. We live in an age of infinite knowledge at our fingertips, trying to make sense of an industry yet we simply have no idea where to start.

That’s why we have created a place for musicians to connect the dots, share ideas, grow, learn and be inspired by our culture, our mission and our stories.

Education is evolving and together we are creating a new system for learning with the very best team of mentors and industry professionals to guide musicians on a pathway to a career in today’s music industry.

Whether you’re mastering an instrument, recording for your next release or ready to start a career as a musician, artist, producer or mentor, your journey starts here. We invite to you find out how we can help you take the next step at USM Open Day.
