Ajay qualified as the UK’s youngest regulated and authorised Independent Financial Adviser in 2003, and then forged a great career in the music industry over the next seven years. Over those years, Ajay gained a 360 degree view of the industry, working both on stage and behind the scenes, and often saw how many artistically brilliant musicians didn’t have the knowledge to make the most of their talent from a business standpoint.
Based in Leicester, the British Centre for Music and Enterprise (BCME) is a ground breaking new facility built with one purpose – to teach the young music lovers of today how they can shape the music industry of tomorrow. The state-of-the-art campus specialises not only in writing, performance and production of music, but also how to navigate the business behind the industry.
Ranging from short courses to three year degrees, BCME also offer special events and Masterclasses for those looking to boost knowledge in specific sectors of the business. There is even a chance for students to start their own record labels under the tutelage of the school, with the aim of spreading their wings independently when the time is right. It’s a truly unique and rounded opportunity for music lovers to pursue their goals in an industry that’s notoriously difficult to crack.
And (possibly) the best part? No written exams. This is all about practical application of real-world skills, and not regurgitating book learning.
