Tell us about your time at ECA
I studied the bachelor of music course at ECA. The four years provided me with a well-rounded set of skills. I studied practical subjects such as Performance, Composition and Keyboard skills, as well as essay-based courses like Music Analysis, Music Psychology and Acoustics. There was also plenty of opportunity for me to pick the subjects I was interested in outwith the mandatory ones.
My academic year was incredibly close-knit; everyone knew each other. It felt like lecturers and tutors addressed you as an individual. They knew your name and the sorts of things you were interested in. I think that music is a very personal endeavour so it does impact the way you learn and create if you’re in a positive, supportive environment.
