Why did you choose Barnfield?

“I chose Barnfield after attending an Open Event. I immediately got a good vibe of the course, and got on well with the Tutor. I also didn’t want to study A Levels at Sixth Form as I just wanted to focus on the one subject.”

Why did you choose your particular course?

“I wanted to carry on studying Music, and I knew that this could lead me onto university. I also felt that the course offered everything I wanted.”

What do you remember most about your time here?

“The two years at Barnfield were very enjoyable. I had great fun with good friends and was able to learn in an environment, which allowed me to develop as a professional Musician/Producer.”

What are you doing now?

“I’m currently working in the Music Industry at Be-Hookd Digital in London, alongside studying towards a Commercial Music BA degree at the University of Westminster. Be-Hookd is a Digital Marketing agency which specializes in the Music Industry. I work on projects with hugely successful artists such as Paul Weller, The Wombats, Tinie Tempah, The Script and Sean Paul, among others.

“During term time at University I work part-time around my course, but over the summer, I work full-time in the London office. I assist managing clients’ digital and online presence, which includes working on creative marketing campaigns across the client roster. I also release and DJ my own music, DJ in clubs in London and have a release on independent Grime label ‘Slimzos Recordings’.”

How useful was your course in helping you secure your current position?

“The course was very helpful. We went through great assignments, which brought different skill sets. The Tutors were great, with a lot of not just technical knowledge but also of the industry. We were also required to complete work experience and this gave me the opportunity to work for Circus Records in Shoreditch. Without this first industry experience, I don’t think I would be working where I am now.”

What skills did you learn at Barnfield College?

“I got an insight to how an office operates in the Music Industry and also was able to network and learn from the others in the office. I made connections which are still active today.”

How did the college experience help you get to where you are today?

“The College allowed me to learn a breadth of skills which would gear me up for University and thus the Music Industry. I was able to focus purely on what I wanted to do, being guided by great people in the perfect environment for what was being taught.”
