The Resonance Roadshow – featuring the amazing Resonance Band – has been touring colleges around the UK. So far, we’ve travelled over 1000 miles, from (northernmost college) to (southernmost college) and many points in between.
Our visit to Dudley College was featured on BBC Midlands Today, and feedback from students has been very positive.
“I enjoyed speaking to people who had experience in the music industries. I’m going to make sure I have a broad range of employable skills and ‘know my stuff’.”
“I found the individual speeches useful for collecting interesting information on how others go about their music career and what they’ve learnt. The workshop will help me choose the right path.”
“I enjoyed the discussions about real-life performance. It put into perspective how many roads there are in the music industry and how many of those will be opened up to me at Resonance.”
In Spring 2020 we’ll be hitting the road again and visiting the following colleges. Keep an eye on this page, because we’ll be adding new dates on an ongoing basis:
- Tuesday 14 January: Newcastle under Lyme College
- Wednesday 15 January: Esher Sixth Form College
- Thursday 16 January: Sandwell College
- Tuesday 11 February: West Herts College
- Wednesday 12 February: Stratford upon Avon College
It is the decision of each college whether their roadshow is open to the general public. If you would like to attend, please contact the college directly to find out if non-students will be admitted.
