Student Comments

“My course has focused on the behind the scenes technical side of live shows, such as lighting, sound and post-production. I have been extremely lucky to have been given some fantastic hands on experience at the college which has allowed me to put what I have learnt in the classroom into practice, for example when I was part of the event crew at Birmingham’s Supersonic Festival. I also get plenty of opportunity to use my skills on site as the college has its own live music venue, The Crossing.” Reiss McLoughlin HE Music Student
