AMS Edinburgh’s End of Term Gigs!

POSTED ON May 13th  - POSTED IN Uncategorized

Photo’s from the events

This week Edinburgh held two end of term gigs for their BA and HNC students.
Well done to everyone, the standard of performance was fantastic!

The HNC EOTG for term 3 is always an opportunity for students to demonstrate how their skills and confidence have developed through the year. Mondays performance was held in the popular Edinburgh venue “Carbaret Voltaire”, situated in the heart of the Edinburgh old town. With a wide ranging musical program ranging from Soul to the Sex Pistols, the HNC’s entertained the crowd with performances that demonstrated technical skill, professionalism, stage craft and a real sense of confidence in their ability. As a tutor, seeing the musical development of learners is the most satisfying part of the job. The difference in performance levels and confidence between their first gig and this one really is remarkable. For this gig the students were responsible for the planning and running of the event. The night was a real success and everybody should be very proud of their efforts.
