Music Stars and Reps Visit With Sixth Formers
On Friday 21st April we welcomed three special visitors from the music industry to CCC.
Our guests included: Will Jones (guitarist with Amber Run) who is currently preparing to tour with his band to promote their second album; Max Helyer (You Me At Six) who already has a number one album and is preparing to headline at Reading this summer as well as head off on a world tour, and also Richard Morgan who is a production engineer at RnR studios. Our guests stayed with us for three hours and gave us an interesting insight into life in the industry. We enjoyed hearing about the world of Indie and Rock music from those on the inside. They informed us of what life on tour was really like as well as explaining the publishing side of the sector, promotions and recording.
Year 12 got the opportunity to ask questions and were really engaged and excited to hear what the experts had to share. Students were also given the opportunity to interview the visitors and produce their own radio shows. We would like to thank Will, Max and Richard for their time, honesty and advice.
Anyone interested in these interviews can access them at our music department’s archives upon request.
