London’s Tech Music School (TMS) has invested £3 million (€3.7 million) in a new facility in Fulham, UK scheduled to open in September 2013. The new building, Barclay House, is a five-storey building (1,765 sq m) that will provide state-of-the-art facilities for TMS’s courses in performance (drums, vocals, guitar and bass) and its new courses in music production, music business and songwriting launched earlier this year. The investment will facilitate the creation of three large live rooms, dedicated drum, vocal, guitar and bass teaching studios, and a series of pre- and post-production studios and music suites. TMS principal Andrew Bates commented: “I am delighted that Elliott Thomas Construction have started work on Tech Music School’s new £3 million home in Fulham. Barclay House will provide students with world-class contemporary music facilities when it opens in September 2013.” “Tech Music School London’s investment in Barclay House Fulham will ensure that all TMS London students will have the opportunity to develop their skills in a state-of-the-art, industry standard learning environment. Located in central London, the music capital of the world.” TMS alumni have gone on to work with One Direction, Adele, George Michael, Brian May, Jessie J, The Saturdays, Public Enemy, Pet Shop Boys, Kylie Minogue and Joe Strummer, among others. www.techmusicschool.co.uk
