The course enabled me to work in a professional environment and really familiarise myself with the practical application of the skills we were learning. It was great being able to test my skills with location recordings and it showed me how I can fully utilise a space or piece of technology.


What are you doing now?
I am working as a Composer working specifically within the field of music for video games.

What are the best things about your course?
The course enabled me to work in a professional environment and really familiarise myself with the practical application of the skills we were learning. It was great being able to test my skills with location recordings and it showed me how I can fully utilise a space or piece of technology.

The career focus module helped me to prepare an extensive portfolio of work that is relevant to my field. I was able to fully establish my brand ready for after graduation. It also made sure that I was prepared and understood the industry.

The composition modules, paired with the tutor support encouraged me to work outside my comfort zone and allowed me to create ambitious projects. Through the lectures I was able to learn a lot about experimentation and how to think outside the box. The amount of effort that went into facilitating me as a student was second to none

Why did you choose the course?
For a long time I wanted to compose music for the moving image. This course had all the elements I needed to improve my creative abilities as a composer as well as develop my technical skills as a producer and engineer.

Why did you choose Lancaster & Morecambe College?
The college offered great facilities and fantastic tutors. I came to LMC because it offers actual time with tutors. I believe that to be one of its strongest assets. To have committed tutors who are genuinely interested in your work and will help you achieve your goals is beyond valuable.

What would you say to someone who was thinking about doing the course?
Make use of everything you have here, because you are going to miss it when you’re gone.

Anything else you would like to tell us?
If it wasn’t for this course and the wonderful tutors, I wouldn’t be able to make a living doing what I love…I’m truly grateful.
