Chloe studied music and is now a self-employed musician, working professionally in the industry, and has recently toured with Status Quo. She described her experience at Sunderland College as inspiring, motivating and unrivalled.
“I decided to study at Sunderland College as I’d heard really great things from friends that were studying there whilst I was still in school.
The music lecturers were unbelievably amazing and knew how to motivate and inspire you to get the best out of you. Their experience in the music industry was inspiring and I knew I was in the best hands whilst studying.
The best thing about the course was being around lecturers that really wanted you to do well.
The experience I had was one of the best of my life and one I’ll never forget. The knowledge set me up for working professionally in the music industry and was in a class of its own.”
Chloe is now a self-employed musician. She is running a function band and has toured with Status Quo on their Winter Acoustic tour, singing backing vocals and playing acoustic guitar.
