Take a Look Around LIPA
Steve Harley Music Masterclass
The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts is a specialist university level institution for performers and those who make performance possible. Based in the Georgian quarter, we offer eight integrated three-year degrees, two one-year Foundation Certificates, a primary school and a part-time performing arts academy for 4 to 19 year olds. We were co-founded by Sir Paul McCartney (our Lead Patron) and Mark Featherstone-Witty RNOM OBE (our Principal). Many people associate us with Music but we also teach Acting, Applied Theatre and Community Drama, Dance, Management, Sound Technology and Theatre Performance Design and Technology.
