How to succeed in this subject:
The key is to focus on a musical instrument, which could be the voice or any other instrument, and to play it, or sing, every day.
We have an open-practice club every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and open access to music technology on the same days. Additionally, we run around 20 different clubs so get involved and get singing and playing! It is important to have an open mind about music and to actively seek out new listening experiences.
