The BASCA – ACM Scholarship
The BASCA Scholarship at ACM
Celebrating 20 years as a world-class music educator, The Academy of Contemporary Music (ACM) has prepared generations of musicians, producers and innovators for sustainable careers in the music industry. Based in Guildford, the Academy has been built on a “learning by doing” ethos, providing an immersive, industry-based education. ACM offers study programmes at degree and diploma levels, with fully accredited courses validated by independent bodies including the QAA, with the most relevant connections to the real-world music industry at their core.
BASCA are pleased to support ACM by offering ‘The BASCA Scholarship’ to one student deemed to have outstanding talent as a songwriter. The scholarship will fully fund a songwriter’s journey through ACM’s 2-Year BA (Hons) Music Industry Practice programme.
First year student Ivan Proctor, studying on the Contemporary Songwriting Degree course, was announced as the recipient of the inaugural award by BASCA Board Director Tim Fraser and Songwriter Committee Member Rita Campbell who worked tirelessly for over a year putting the scholarship award together.
The presentation was made on 2 October 2015 at the European Composer & Songwriter Alliance (ECSA) General Assembly Opening Concert, organised by BASCA.
