Where it all began

In 1998, two men with a vision started what was to become dBs Music, with little more than a few rooms in the local Arts centre. As demand for their unique brand of technical education grew, so did the facilities, eventually taking over a former probation office in the early 2000’s. After filling it to bursting point with top of the range IT facilities, industry standard recording and production suites and experienced tutors with a wealth of industry experience, dBs was able to offer its brand of professionally focused education to more people, to help them build better futures.

Situated right in the heart of Plymouth, the centre is within walking distance of all major transport links, the thriving commercial centre and the beautiful Plymouth coastline of the historical Barbican and Hoe Foreshore.
