LMA offers a creative environment in a family atmosphere, where tutors are experienced industry
professionals, facilities are second to none, and hard work promises to bring great rewards.

Here is what five of our recent graduates have to say about their time at LMA –
and why you should follow in their footsteps.


“I am so grateful for my time at LMA, I would not be the artist I am without the support from the tutors and all of the staff. All tutors are industry professionals which gave me the confidence and skills to write my own music and go onto release my own songs. 

Three years ago, before I started LMA, I would never have imagined my songs being played and streamed on national radio stations and music platforms. This is definitely down to the opportunities and networking that LMA provides.”

Fiona Lennon
Music Performance
& Industry Graduate

“The fact that my degree in Musical Theatre at LMA was largely performance based, meant I got the chance to perform in some of the best Theatres across Liverpool.

Even though I have graduated, I am still part of the LMA Choir. We have had amazing opportunities like performing on X-Factor, Pitch Battle and with Robbie Williams in his Hyde Park sell out gig. I absolutely loved my time at LMA. It is a family forever.”

Musical Theatre Graduate 


“LMA has greatly impacted my career. Since graduating, I’ve worked on world class movies, TV dramas, Netflix series and TV ads, as a Film & TV Location Assistant. 

My first big job offer came via LMA’s connections with Netflix, for the hit series ‘The Irregulars’. From this I was employed to work on ‘The Batman’ movie in my hometown Liverpool, which was a dream come true! 

My career is thriving, working on Channel 4’s ‘Help’, a Sky drama, ITV’s ‘Rules of The Game’ and a TV Ad for BT Sport. 

Without studying at LMA, I genuinely believe I wouldn’t know the key factors of the industry, how to collaborate and have the knowledge and experience to lead me where I am today.”

Harvey Shaw
Digital Film &
TV Production Graduate

“I loved my time at LMA and working with such a high calibre of tutors who were all from industry, was amazing. The masterclasses that we attended were world class. Imelda Staunton, Ken Loach, Robbie Williams, John Bishop, Mark Womack and Robert Farquhar are just a few of the names that visited us.

“LMA is so connected to industry through the workshops and live briefs. Studying here has given me the skills and tools necessary to make it in the gaming sector. 

Whilst I was in my final year, we were required to work for a client, this led me to my first industry-based job working for Just Play, creating their virtual space and marketing their new building. 

Since then I’ve worked as a Gaming User Interface Artist for International, Hobo Ltd. The networking and collaboration skills I gained at LMA made this all possible and I’m currently working as a freelance tutor at LMA, training the next generation of Digital Games Artists.”
