“The independence really drove me to discover what excites and motivates me, helping me to develop real world skills, such as working creatively in a group scenario.  

Studying on the Music pathway at Canterbury College course provided me with a fantastic music education and I owe a lot of the opportunities I’ve had since to the guidance and skill of the department and lecturers. “

“After competing my course, I have been working away at festivals such as Glastonbury and Leeds Festival and I am now working on transitioning from being the security staff to being one of the event staff, which has all provided to be excellent industry experience working around many different artists. 

Additionally, I am starting a jazz and soul focused band with the hopes in one day becoming a touring artist at events such as the festivals I have been so lucky to work at.”
