Created and run by musicians for musicians, Echo Factory provides aspiring artists and music industry professionals with industry-facing music degrees tailored to their individual career aspirations.
“The number of music graduates who are struggling to launch sustainable careers is shocking given that music is one of fastest growing industries in the UK”, says award-winning entrepreneur and Echo Factory creator, Ajay Naik.
“Leicester’s music scene is buzzing and by offering degree courses that support our students’ creativity whilst simultaneously teaching them the entrepreneurial skills to succeed, means they not only understand how the music industry works but are also crucially prepared to succeed within it.”
Leicester’s role at the forefront of music is exemplified by the recent launch of the new music licensing company – PPL PRS Ltd. By protecting the value of music within our society, the UK continues to provide some of the world’s best and most successful musicians.
“The practical, collaborative approach we take when teaching our Contemporary Music Performance and Music Business degrees allows our students to harness their passion and get a huge amount of real-world experience,’ says Ajay Naik.‘The importance of nurturing the next generation of musical talent cannot be understated, and we will continue to empower our students with the skills, knowledge and experience to face the challenges of this fast-moving industry.”
