Yesterday I was invited back to my old University, Oxford Brookes, to talk to students about life in the music industry! I was joined by composer/producer/mixer Rich Aitken, composer Miles Hancock, Del Amitri guitarist Iain Harvie, MD of XYZ Music Academy Duncan Lee, music therapist Rosie Robinson, fundraiser Gemma Buckley and Victoria Larkin from Oxford Contemporary Music. It was a very successful day doing a panel, Q&A and speed networking. It's great to see so many motivated young musicians, and a privilege to be able to help them on their journey. It was also nice to have a nose round the old department and catch up with a few familiar faces (although there's nothing like being back at your old Uni to make you feel old!!)! Thank you to all the staff and students for making us all so welcome!
