We aim to foster a sense of community among songwriters, lyricists and composers and encourage the next generation of professional music writers. One of our main pillars of activity is cultivating creative talent. The Ivors Academy works closely with a wide range of academic institutions to nurture the craft of songwriting and composition. We actively support the professional development of creators and influencers of the future through our Academic Partnership Programme.

About our Academic Partnerships

Our Academic Partnership Programme builds close ties between The Ivors Academy and the best of music educational institutions.

Designed to create mutually rewarding collaborations with institutions across the country working in music, we create bespoke agreements with institutions based on their needs and interests. Our relationships often include:

  • Lectures and guest speakers: whether an ‘Introduction to The Ivors Academy’ seminar, a lecture from an established songwriter or composer, or a collaboration on a special project such as a symposium or conference.
  • Information and events: regular updates from The Ivors Academy and invitations to relevant events for your students and staff
