Olivia described her time at Sunderland College as enjoyable, challenging and fun. She said the course helped to prepare her for a career in the music industry. She is now studying the foundation degree in music.
“The course was very appealing to me as it offered opportunities and modules that other colleges didn’t offer. I enjoyed the amount of practical tasks we were able to do as I felt it helped me to develop as a musician. As well as improving my practical/performance skills, the course also taught me about the music industry as a whole. It prepared me for a career in music.
The campus was always very clean and tidy with all of the facilities we needed to complete our course. I often took part in open evenings by performing visitors at the College, which improved my practical and performance skills.
I would recommend this course to anyone who wants a future career in music. It helps prepare you and also allows you to get to know other musicians in order to start your own musical projects outside of college.”
Olivia is now studying Foundation Degree Music.
