Students meet leading music industry figures at workshop event

Music Technology students from Gower College Swansea have attended a special workshop which allowed them to rub shoulders with industry professionals.

The ‘What’s Next in the Music Industry?’ event was hosted by NPTC Group (Neath campus).

“This was an amazing opportunity for students to network with musicians, producers and writers,” says the college’s Enterprise Officer Lucy Turtle, who accompanied the students along with lecturer Simon Prothero. “It’s not every day that you get to meet people like this – industry figures who have travelled the world and played with some of the most amazing artists. Our students came away from the event feeling totally inspired.”

Among the speakers was radio presenter and writer Adam Walton, whose BBC Radio Wales show 'Revolution' gave early exposure to bands such as Gorky's Zygotic Mynci, and Catatonia.

Also in attendance were Dan Thomas - a musician, producer and audio engineer who has provided remixes for Ellie Goulding, Dan Croll and Kelis – and Aziz Ibrahim, who is best known for his work as guitarist with Simply Red, The Stone Roses and Ian Brown.
