SSR Manchester - Tom Aston, Technical Director
Tom originally studied Audio Engineering Techniques & Technology with us in 2005. We hired him just two months into his studies as a part-time technician around his other commitments as an audio product specialist for Dawsons Music.

Tom continued to work at SSR after completing the course whilst also freelancing as an engineer. Over time, Tom progressed through the company until becoming a full-time member of staff and then Technical Director.

Tom is responsible for the overall quality and reliability of our facilities, and ensuring we provide students with the latest, most industry-relevant technology.

Spirit Studio in Manchester, a studio which Tom designed and installed in 2009, has received much acclaim from international bands, producers and students, with it even being referred to as the Abbey Road of The North. Tom was also responsible for the design and installation of the entire SSR London campus and oversees development of new facilities in Jakarta & Singapore.

Outside of SSR, Tom is a bedroom DJ and loves all things drum and bass.
