UTTA MUSIC COURSES :

Music courses currently take place at the Beehouse Recording Studio, a well-established and resourced studio in Powys.
Music courses at UTTA are based on creative development. We are happy to work with music notation if you wish, but our main aim is to help the artist move into a confident position where they feel in control of their output - the sounds they create, and how to manipulate them. We work extensively with singers, songwriters, and producers as well as instrumentalists, and we are comfortable with most genres. You can see our methodology here : Music Teaching Methodology.
