Lockdown learning: Since the start of lockdown we’ve been encouraging our students (and staff for that matter!) to share with us their clips of their musical jammin’ sessions at home. We’ve be sent some great clips, and shared them to our social media weekly since the start of lockdown. Students from our Exeter centre, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Gateshead and even AMSonline have been busy producing and creating during lockdown. More than lockdown learning, this is lockdown jamming!

Here’s a round up of some of the videos we’ve been enjoying these past few months…
