Beat Matching and the BBC

By 6th December 2018 No Comments

This week saw the arrival of the BBC.  They came to film a feature that went live on Look East on Monday night.  It also marked the end of the beginning for all students in Cohort 3.  They have now completed the course and are heading out to continue their careers as DJs and Music Producers. 

At the end of a course that spans 12 weeks it is always sad to say goodbye, and this is the third time we’ve had to do it.  However, there are fantastic opportunities just around the corner for our students.  We are so excited to see what they’ll do next.  Students from Cohorts 1 and 2 have already been booked for events, accepted onto apprenticeships, and some have even been selected to become tutors for the next lot of school intakes.

On Monday, the BBC came in to film. Deborah was featured on the live show, and Lisa was interviewed by the team at The Platform Club.  Craig and Nicky, previous students, were also interviewed about the course!  Nicky, after playing B2B with BK at our event Unity of Sound, has already received three bookings for next year!

Cohorts 3 and 5 had a lesson about the importance of social media. Cohort 4 were in the production studio getting their teeth into the synths.  Also featured on the itinerary for these groups were DJ assessments, track creation, personal profiling, instagram stories, beat matching, and using the effects on the Pioneer RX2s.

Then came Tuesday: Cohort 3’s last day 

Tuesday was the final day for Cohort 3.  Their 12 weeks are up, and while it’s been amazing to see them grow and improve…it’s time for them to continue their journey.

With a full day of learning still going on for Cohorts 4 and 5, group 3 practiced in the basement for the final time of their course.  They finished up their personal profiles and social media accounts, ready to launch themselves out into the world of the music industry.

Students in cohort 3 gave all the tutors and support team a mug with our logo on one side, and message on the other side thanking the tutors for everything.

To see some of the exit interviews from the course, why not follow us on social media?  There you’ll see the latest updates from the school, as well as further opportunities to enrol in a city near you!

You should also have a look at PTS Training Academy, who collaborate and support the school.  They specialise in training and apprenticeships, helping people grow and develop into new roles.
