SSR Manchester - SSR at Doves sound check
SSR at Doves sound check
Through SSR’s great industry connections our students were invited to attend the sound check and rehearsal of The Doves at The Manchester Academy on Sunday 26th April.

The students were issued with Access all areas passes and spent the whole afternoon with the sound crew and The Doves management team.

Natalie, one of our growing number of female students looking to break into Live Sound loved the whole day:
"It was a fantastic experience. The guys were incredibly generous with their time and answered all our questions. We learnt loads so thanks to SSR for giving us this opportunity."

Jay Beard, SSR’s Head of Live Sound, has engineered for the Doves and is a well respected figure in the Live Music Industry, so SSR students are given privileges and access to the industry that no other college or institution can ever hope to have.

As Jay confirms
"Along with great facilities and tutors, SSR students know that our industry connections make us the only place to be if you want a career in Music."
