Students from QMC at the Anvil

The Anvil Trust partners Queen Mary’s College to increase students’ skills

Posted on

Students from Queen Mary’s College have recently taken part in two technical training workshops at The Anvil to increase their skills. The workshops concentrated on lighting and sound for live performance.

These two initial sessions are part of a series aimed at supplementing modules within the Performing Arts and Music Technology courses that QMC currently offers its students.  A showcase performance will then take place at The Anvil in the New Year, giving students the opportunity to experience all technical aspects of a show day, from initial load-in to performance.

"It was good to see the preparation that goes into production sound rather than just trying to work it out whilst watching a show" said Tom O'Driscoll, studying at the college. 

Ruairi McNulty, Technical Manager at The Anvil explained “The students are being given practical experience of what is required to succeed in the industry. 

“QMC delivers courses that prepare young people for direct entry into various industries and we are pleased to be able to help make their transition from education to workforce as smooth as possible”.

Teacher of Music Technology Rob Cavill added “Using the facilities and professional staff at The Anvil adds value to the student experience and gives the students an extra dimension that cannot be achieved in the classroom.  Our partnership with The Anvil Trust gives us an extra edge in a competitive market for student recruitment”.
