Whether it’s developing your own musical identity, becoming a performer, songwriter or producer, the UAL Extended Diploma in Music Performance and Production at Henley offers you the chance to reach professional standards in your skills.

The course is particularly suitable for those thinking of pursuing a career in music and who want to work within the industry.
Our links with the music industry and specialised performance programmes are uniquely designed to help towards developing
your career through networking and individual guidance. You will study all areas of music including arranging, song writing, music for film, marketing and music theory and will take part in regular large-scale performances and events on your chosen instruments or voice.
You will also benefit from the regular input of industry professionals who are part of the teaching team. There are also two industry standard recording studios, and several practice rooms where you can learn Pro -Tools, rehearse and master your craft.
To apply for the course you will be invited to attend one of our taster sessions which will include an informal audition. Interested
applicants should work on developing their technique as instrumentalists and vocalists.
Previous performance or production experience is useful but not essential. We offer clear, proven progression routes into the creative industries and Higher Education.
Students on the UAL Extended Diploma in Production and Performance have the potential to study at some of the UK’s top Music institutions, including the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Trinity Laban, Leeds College of Music, ACM, BIMM and the music Conservatoires.

Student Profile


Alice is studying the UAL Extended Diploma in Music Performance and Production.

“Coming to The Henley College was like a new start and a new environment. The course really felt like something I wanted to do as I’m always listening to music, song writing or practicing. I like how the course is based on group work and if you’re nervous about trying new ideas you’ve always got people there with you, but equally you can be an individual. When I have completed the course, I want to go into the music industry to write and perform my own music.”

Alice came to the College from Little Heath School.
