LIPA joins BASCA as an Academic Supporter
2 October 2012
We are delighted to announce that LIPA (the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts) has become an Academic Supporter of BASCA.
LIPA opened in 1996 to forge a new approach to performing arts training. It was co-founded by BASCA Fellow, Paul McCartney, and is housed in his old school, which underwent a multi-million pound renovation to transform it into a state-of-the-art performing arts higher education institution.
Martin Isherwood, Head of Music at LIPA, said, "The Music programme at LIPA is committed to developing new songwriters and composers. Working with BASCA will help us strengthen our role as a leader in this field."
BASCA (the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors) is the independent professional association representing music writers in all genres, from songwriting, through to media, contemporary classical and jazz.
BASCA CEO Patrick Rackow said, “One of BASCA’s main aims is to encourage the next generation of professional music writers and we are delighted to be working with LIPA to achieve this.”
