Richard studied Level 3 extended Diploma for Music Practitioners and went to complete his Level 4. Richard said:

"I wanted to study music as I am a self taught musician and I wanted to the opportunity to learn the fundamentals and theories behind it. I attended a six week taster course for music for one day a week, before applying for the course. I found the tutors really helpful and it was good as most of them were involved in the music industry or played instruments themselves and so were able to share their knowledge and experiences. I am now in several bands and I am going on to study Music at The University of Hull".
