Personal statement

A Music Industries Specialist studying on the Media & Communications Course at Birmingham City University.

Having little to no experience in the media, let a lone the music, industries before starting university I was unaware of where I actually wanted to end up career wise but my time on the course enabled me to see which direction I wanted to go in.

After just one year I found myself fully emerged in the local music scene as a facilitator rather than just the consumer I had been for years. This is due to the extended time that I have spent working for Sonic Gun Concerts, a local but successful music promotions company. Through Sonic Gun I have worked in venues of all sizes throughout Birmingham and worked with artists & musicians from all around the world.
