Tileyard Education are delighted to partner with Spitfire Audio to offer students access to the incredible range of virtual instruments in the world. In addition, Spitfire have joined our Bursary Scheme to offer one MA student a full scholarship to cover their entire study fees. Spitfire Audio sponsored Haula last year.

Spitfire produces the finest virtual instruments from the finest musical samples in the world. It is a beacon of quality not just for its own productions but the endorsements it offers to third-party sample developers and fellow sound smiths it goes into production partnerships with. At the heart of Spitfire’s evolution is the greatest recorded selection of orchestral samples on the planet thus far, alongside a recent expansion in scope to cover all areas of the music spectrum.
Spitfire was set up by a British group of composers, sound smiths, producers, engineers and technologists wanting to revolutionise sampling and bring it back to the centre of the music industry. Like any new music technology from radio to synthesisers, sampling was perceived as a threat to music making and music makers. Spitfire is at the vanguard of changing that opinion – Spitfire’s main goal is to promote British music making the world over whilst (via an ever-growing distribution chain) distributing royalties to its contributors (musicians, engineers, technicians, artists and producers) based on sales.
