A state-of-the-art conservatoire.


With our 60 teaching and practice rooms, seven recording studios (including an SSL G Series console) and three mixing studios (one with 5.1 Surround Sound), at Leeds College of Music you study and create in a thoroughly professional environment. 

Our SSL G Series console is linked to the Conservatoire's Recital Room, meaning you can capture live performance directly – while our studios, bespoke ensemble and rehearsal rooms and MacLabs are open until 3am, letting you work to your own timetable. 

The Conservatoire boasts six fully equipped Mac Labs, with an outstanding computer-to-student ratio and in-house Apple-trained tutors. 

We are the only conservatoire with All-Steinway status in England, meaning that 90% of our pianos come from the Steinway & Sons family – including two Model Ds.


With theatre lighting, excellent sound and high-power projection, the Conservatoire's own 350-seat performance space, The Venue, hosts a busy in-house concert programme as well as professional artists – while our 120-seat Recital Room offers superb acoustics and an intimate environment for smaller ensembles and soloists.
The Venue and Recital Room also house our two Steinway Model Ds.


Stocked with more than 10,000 CDs, 8,000 LPs and 18,000 items of printed music, the conservatoire's library brings together vital resources for your studies, whatever your level.
Housed in a quiet and comfortable environment including a computer cluster, silent study room, listening posts and a postgraduate study area, the library's printed music and study score collection spans all styles, eras and instruments, from unusual ensemble formats to guitar and pop songs.
A generous collection of books and DVDs covers everything from music biography to composition for film and sound recording, and there's even a piano with headphones so you can try out music before borrowing it, or test out composition ideas while working.
A wide range of magazines and journals – from Wire to MusicWeek and Jazzwise, The Musical Times to Psychology of Music – caters for all interests and research areas, and electronic journals can be accessed via Space.
The library is also home to the Conservatoire's Jazz Archive, which holds a wide range of recordings (including unreleased material), printed music and memorabilia, valuable collections of biographical files and original manuscripts. The Jazz Archive is open to non-students by appointment. Read more about the Jazz Archive.
While the library's resources are available to students only, we are part of the InterLibrary Loan system, meaning non-students can request our printed music resources via their local library.



The Conservatoire's virtual learning environment, Space lets you take control of your studies, providing a digital hub through which you can access audiovisual material and interactive content, communicate with staff and students in online forums and look for jobs and other opportunities. 

Featuring lecture capture and online classrooms to enable you to access teaching remotely, Space is an integral part of your course and study experience. 

It also gives you the opportunity to build an online portfolio, showcasing your development to industry contacts and potential employers.
