Rhonda Merrick, Founder of Ashford Arts Centre, delivered a Music Industry lecture to a group of young musicians and aspiring artist managers at Ashford College.


Music students need to understand how to create music, but also how to build and nurture audiences, live performances are vital to gaining work experience and building contacts with local event promoters and media who could lead talented young artists and their managers to future paid jobs.

The event was well received and future workshops are a strong possibility next year.
