Music students take top prizes at SkillsCompetition Wales regional heat

Bands comprising Level 3 Vocational Music students from Gower College Swansea swept the board at the recent SkillsCompetition Wales Popular Music regional heat.

The students, from the Extended Diploma course at the Llwyn y Bryn campus, competed against musicians from eight other colleges across Wales, performing two original songs each before a panel of judges.

Zen Dogs took Gold and Inscape were awarded Bronze at the event at Theatr Ffwrnes in Llanelli.

“To take two of the top three prizes at this event is a fantastic achievement for our students,” says lecturer Julian Clarke. “We are now looking forward to the next stage, competing against all FE colleges in England and Wales with the possibility of reaching the final in the NEC in Birmingham.”
