John Lambert, Head of Visual & Creative Studies
"For the last 3 years, I’ve been studying Music at Lancaster & Morecambe College and it’s been great. I’d just like to say a big thanks to all the tutors for being so cool during my time there. If you’re local and looking to study music, I’d definitely recommend you come here. The best tutors you can possibly ask for! They have been really great in supporting me with my touring and recording schedule alongside my studies and I feel that now I am ready to go full time as a musician. I’m still going to be around though, I’m recording album number three at LMC Studios!”
