I came to The Henley College from Gillotts School in Henley. I have been producing my own music in my bedroom for about 2 years. I was very self taught so there were gaps in my knowledge so taking this course was a step I took to help my aspirations of having a career within the music industry. The college has great facilities and good transport options to get here therefore The Henley College was an obvious choice over any other music colleges I looked into. With a mix of creativity and an academic element it was the right course for me.
I enjoy having access to the studios as well as the modern equipment in the music department. It is free too use and in good condidtion. The lessons are interactive and challenging, I found the course had a big learning curve at the beginning, however the information you learn is used in your practical tasks later on.
I’m hoping to use this course as a base to move into a career in the music industry. I am currently looking into music technology or similar courses (possibly more in an engineering direction) and my end goal is too be involved in the industry and remain creative.
