Time of day
I’ve always wanted to study Music Technology and it’s great to have this course available at college. I didn’t study music at school but getting this opportunity has really been amazing. I didn’t think I’d be able to read music or produce it so quickly and I’ve even got my own set-up back at home. There’s so many facilities to take advantage of, two production rooms, performance rooms, studios and a recital room where we put on our final performances. I’ve progressed onto the Music Technology Foundation Degree and that’s been a great step up for me. I really want to be a producer but this course has opened up other options in music for me – one of those being events management which is what I’m leaning towards now.
