CMAT forms Music Academic Partnership with UK Music

The University of Kent’s Centre for Music and Audio Technology┬áhas formed a Music Academic Partnership (MAP) with UK Music.

MAP is a ground-breaking collaboration between a select number of educational institutions and UK Music, a campaigning and lobbying group which represents every part of the recorded and live music industry from artists, musicians, songwriters, composers, record labels, publishers, producers and music licensing groups.

Academic members, who must be invited to become a part of MAP, benefit from this membership with a number of initiatives that include exclusive networking, collaborative research, a parliamentary programme, rehearsal spaces, and a range of student opportunities, including the BBC Introducing Pilot, MAP Music Technology Prize and access to exclusive Production Days and industry showcases.

This partnership is the latest example of CMAT’s excellent links to the music industry and commitment to the employability of its students. CMAT works with leading music bodies across the industry, including the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers, and Authors (BASCA), the Music Managers Forum and the Council for Music Makers.
