How and why did you decide to study Music Technology?

I’ve always had a passion for Music and in the two years leading up to going to Reigate I really started to get a taste for the production and technology side. Finding out that there was an amazing course for this at Reigate was a no brainer.

What have you enjoyed most about your courses?

In Music Tech I’ve loved the communal aspect the most. We’re encouraged to collaborate with each other as much as we can, within a brief. It’s a great way of sharing ideas and exploring ways of improving together.

Tell us about any College activities you’ve been involved in outside lessons

I’m part of the Classics Album Club, which is a great little gathering of people who get together to listen to a new album every week, one that someone has chosen and considers a classic. It’s a great way of expanding our Music knowledge and taste.

I took part in Battle of the Bands at the Harlequin Theatre in Redhill, which was good for gaining more live performance experience, in front of a super-friendly audience.

What do you think makes Reigate College a good place to be a student?

I think that Reigate is an amazingly inclusive environment. Coming from a more traditional secondary school, it’s been awesome to see how much Reigate encourages people to celebrate their individuality and each other’s differences. I also love the independence we’re encouraged to have, both in and outside of lessons.

What are your plans for the future?

My plan is to study Music Production at Bath Spa University. I’d love to become a Music Producer, whether that be producing for other people, contributing to sound stores or creating my own albums, it doesn’t really matter to me as long as I can produce.
