Joel Little

Course Attended: Contemporary Music Performance

"Doing the Diploma in Contemporary Music Performance at MAINZ really helped me build my music and performing skills and taught me what to expect from the music industry. If I hadn't had that knowledge things would have been a lot harder for our band starting out."

Joel graduated from MAINZ in 2003 and went straight on tour with Goodnight Nurse. He has had recent success co-writing and producing Lorde's EP 'The Love Club'.

"I am still involved with MAINZ as a member of its programme advisory committee. I appreciate the leg up that MAINZ gave me in terms of having that basic understanding of the business and the industry. It’s a cool place and I’d like to encourage people to get involved with music."
