Course Attended: Musical Arts Degree

I always wanted to get my degree and to be able to do that in music is a fantastic opportunity. I feel really lucky that I have been able to study something I love.

I play the bass and I’ve been in bands and productions since high school, but I wanted to learn more about how the music industry works. MAINZ was a great fit for me: my classmates were tight and the tutors were amazing. I feel like they really care about what you want to do and go extra lengths to make it happen for you.

I joined MAINZ straight from high school and did the certificate and diploma courses, but I wanted to take my studies to the next level. The degree really pushes you to think for yourself, be disciplined and manage your studies. I learned to be more confident and to rely on myself – it was all about my growth as a musician. Now I’m recording with my band and we’re looking to go on tour; that’s the dream and MAINZ has set me up to achieve it.
