Covid-19 Update

Given the Covid-19 pandemic, the College calendar has been changed for the first term of the 2020/21 academic year and has introduced a two-week October half term break. This break is from Monday 19 to Friday 30 October during which time the College is closed to Learners. The College office will be open from Monday 19 to Friday 23 October (telephone/email enquiries open) and closed from Monday 26 October to Friday 30 October (telephone/email enquiries closed until Monday 2 November). From 2 November we are increasing the areas in which a face mask or covering is required to be worn.

New premises for the Academy of Music and Sound

The Academy of Music and Sound, who work in partnership with Eastleigh College on music performance courses, have recently opened their new premises at High Street Spitfire House in Southampton.

The Academy is celebrating its 10th year as the premier provider of music education in Southampton, and the new premises have allowed them to expand and improve on their facilities. The new location features acoustically hung walls, sound-proof doors, and brand new equipment. 

An opening ceremony was recently held to celebrate the move and showcase the new facilities, which was attended by local music businesses, local schools and colleges, and graduates from the Academy. The Right Worshipful Mayor of Southampton was also in attendance, and cut the ribbon to mark the official opening. 

The evening was filled with performances from students and staff, in addition to Mark Chadwick and Rev Hammer from The Levellers, who proceeded to smash a guitar in celebration! 

The Academy will be holding their end of term gigs later this month and are also taking auditions for 2016 study places! Please contact southampton@academyofmusic.ac.uk for more information.
