Music students meet The Beatles engineer21st December 2015
Level 3 Music Students, Sound & Music Technology Foundation Degree students and BA Music students recently attended a talk from Ken Scott, the engineer for The Beatles and producer of David Bowie.
Held at Leeds Beckett University, the talk was called “From Abbey Road to Ziggy Stardust with Ken Scott” where Ken spoke about his life and shared memories of working with world famous artists such as The Beatles and Elton John. The students enjoyed the talk immensely and learnt much from Ken’s extensive experience.
Harry Bond, 17, Level 3 Music Technology, from Liversedge said “I really enjoyed it. There was a lot to learn. Ken Scott has lots of knowledge of how music used to be, what has changed and what used to be done better. It was very interesting to hear what he had gone through. I think it was useful for our course to think differently about how we produce things.
It’s a brilliant course. I’ve loved it. I was inspired to come onto the course after taking Level 2 Music Performance. I think it will open many doors and it will be beneficial for me jobwise. I can go to places to do sound checking or even stadiums to work on things like football games to ensure the sound is heard equally in all places. There are lots of job opportunities for me.”
Callum Wagg, 16, Level 3 Music Technology, from Northowram said: “It was really good and I learnt so much from Ken Scott. It’s very useful for music production because we got an inside view of how he used to do it and then we can combine it with our own knowledge.
Music Technology is a really good course. I’ve made loads of new friends and I’m learning something new every day. I want to be a roadie and help bands to set up their stage, the sound and wires or work in a stadium and be a sound engineer. The course will give me all the right knowledge and send me in the right direction.”
