At Industry Week 2019, students enjoyed talks from some of our great alumni at the Do It For Real events. Some of Confetti’s top music graduates came back and spoke about their industry experiences since leaving, and answered questions about working within the music industry. Learn a bit more about them…

After this, Tom continued his studies with the Live and Technical Events Degree at Confetti, shortly after which he began working for DHP Family in Stealth and Rescue, before being moved over to Rock City after a year and a half where he now works as a live sound engineer.
