Lewisham Southwark College’s Music Department is now working in collaboration with two local studios: rehearsal facility Music Room London and recording studio Press Play.

Music Room London is a professional, state-of-the-art rehearsal studio in New Cross Gate with a 25- year history of providing rehearsal space to some of Britain’s best-known acts.

Press Play is currently one of London’s most creative recording studios, combining a wealth of experience and expertise with a combination of state-of-the-art and rare vintage equipment.

Students on year one of our Foundation Degree in Music and Production spend one day per week writing and rehearsing at Music Room London. Students on year two also enjoy this opportunity, and spend another day at Press Play running recording sessions, working on producing their original tracks under the watchful eye of owner Andy Ramsey.

Jon Fell, course leader for the Foundation Degree Music program commented – “Completing the remainder of their course outside of the College in the kind of professional environment in which they hope to work is proving incredibly valuable: they are learning so fast and producing such great music.”

Carole Kitching, Principal and CEO at the College, said: “You don’t just come to Lewisham Southwark College to study in a classroom. Our business contacts mean you can also get real-life experience alongside learning. This is a fantastic plus for our students and we’re looking forward to more and more learners benefiting from these types of opportunities in the future, too.”
