“My three years at LIPA gave me a great understanding of how the music business works and the hard work that’s needed to succeed. I met my band 6ix Toys in Freshers week and four years on we’re signed to a label, have released our first album and are currently gigging all over Europe.”

"LIPA provided me with the chance to meet and learn with many talented students from around the world, many of whom I work with professionally today. There was plenty of interaction and collaboration between the different disciplines, much as it is in the current music business. It helped me see the industry as a whole and to find my place within it."
