The Academy of Contemporary Music will now offer budding grime artists the opportunity to study a Rap & MC degree at its Guilford and Birmingham campuses in the UK.

The course is overseen by the award-winning artist ShaoDow, who co-curated the course’s modules to include the study of lyricism, flow, delivery and more. The course comes from a study which saw students aged between 11 and 15 take part in a new project to teach electronic, grime and hip hop music in schools instead of classical. Not only did attendance rise, but those involved also performed higher than expected in subjects such as maths and English.

Speaking on the course, the CEO and executive chairman of ACM, Kainne Clements, said: “I could not be more proud of the team at ACM who have put together this incredible program for lyricists, rappers, MCs, and those of you who want to make beats… You know that you can really only get to where you want to be by collaborating – so that is what this is all about.”

Applications for AMC’s BA (Hons) Rap & MC degree are open now and accepted students will start the course as of September 2019.
