|The Academy of Contemporary Music|
|Motto||World Leaders in Music Industry Education|
The Academy of Contemporary Music (ACM) is a music academy in Guildford, Surrey, England providing its own contemporary music-based courses and partnering three public institutions, one college and two universities in respect of many of their contemporary music courses.
The school of music has a focus on rock, pop music, electronic dance music and a vocational approach. The school has links with Guildford's Electric Theatre, Guildford College, Middlesex University and University of Surrey.
The Academy of Contemporary Music was the brainchild of guitar tutor Phil Brookes. In the 2000s, the academy partnered with three educational establishments for awarding qualifications. These are Guildford College which grants BTEC/Edexcel awards for the lower discipline, Middlesex University and the University of Surrey. The latter validate the Certificate in Higher Education for the intermediate discipline, award degrees at BA (Hons) and BMus (Hons) through to an MA (Masters) in contemporary music in partnership with ACM.
In May 2008 ACM was awarded The Queen's Award for Enterprise: Innovation (Technology) (2008). In late 2009, with support from The University of Central Oklahoma, ACM opened a base outside of the UK in Downtown Oklahoma City, appointing Scott Booker as Executive Director.
Alumni / former students of ACM (including academic music courses in which vocational placements were made with ACM) include:
