The course at Surrey was perfect for me. It offered the right balance of composition, computing and pure music. The amount of choice offered was staggering, and I was able to tailor my degree to suit my interests and aspirations.
The teaching staff were so friendly and supportive. They were very engaged with their students and offered opportunities to get involved in many different aspects of music, such as concert and event management, performance, professional recording, computer programming and more. During my time at Surrey I developed my confidence in many areas of musicianship, especially composition.
I started my career as Marketing Assistant at Britten Sinfonia, a chamber orchestra, and was recently promoted to a new role as their Marketing Manager. With my degree in creative music technology I can offer a slightly different set of skills to people who have done a pure music degree, and it’s lent itself perfectly to my career in arts marketing.
