College learners access the music industry
Coleg y Cymoedd learners to follow in the footsteps of worldwide music celebrities.
Music learners at Coleg y Cymoedd will have the opportunity to study on a new Level 2 "Access to Music - Rock School" course which will run at the Nantgarw campus, starting later this month.
The college are the first Welsh college to run the Level 2 Subsidiary Diploma for Practitioners, from a Music Industry based portfolio that has produced some of the biggest names in the charts including Ed Sheeran, Rita Ora and Jess Glynne.
The Access to Music Curriculum was originally run at the Brit School and also includes the Rock School: Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma for Music Practitioners, which the college will deliver at its Rhondda campus. This will allow learners to progress from the Level 2 - one step closer to their dream careers.
All courses will be delivered by Coleg y Cymoedd's expert music team, Scott Howells, Rory Meredith and Chris Summerill, who have years of experience within the music industry and are still heavily involved in composing, recording and performing; outside of their college work.
As the Music department unveilled this exciting opportunity Scott Howells, Music Tutor at Coleg y Cymoedd, said “We will be offering learners a chance to experience all aspects of the music industry from engineering and recording at our state of the art Recording studios to working alongside emerging Welsh musical talent when organising and running The Valleys Soundfest music festival. We will also be using our music industry links to give the learners a real life experience".
The course begins on Monday 12th September 2016 so all interested learners need to apply now as places are limited.
