I came to The Henley College from Wallingford School. I wanted to study Music as it is something I want to pursue as a career, either it be working in a recording studio or performing. The part I have enjoyed the most about this course has definitely been the composing aspect of the curriculum.
I'm hoping this course will lead me in the direction of studying Music Technology or Commercial Music at university. I would then ultimately like to have a career within the music industry.
