Cumbernauld and Motherwell students came together to entertain fellow students with an afternoon of music at Cornerstone House in Cumbernauld.
The students put on an acoustic/rock event which took its inspiration from Jools Holland’s eponymous BBC show. The joint partnership event featured around 40 students from both campuses.
Alan Moffat, Film & Television lecturer said:
“The joint event was a fantastic example of the collaborative approach to learning which is being undertaken. Both offer different types of music courses and it’s great to see our students assisting those from Motherwell and vice-versa.”
Scott Cowie, music lecturer from Motherwell, added:
“As the merger continues it is great to work so closely together a.This project has involved students from several courses as well as those who work on the radio station, bringing all parts of the event together successfully.”
Motherwell and Cumbernauld students have been working closely with each other over the past year with Cumbernauld sound and TV production students delivering technological assistance to Motherwell’s music students at an event at Wallace Monument in November 2012.
Student William Clapperton (19) from Cumbernauld’s HND TV Production course said:
“It’s great to build bridges with the students at Motherwell College. We’re able to help them with technical support while recording them performing helps improve on our skills.”
Student Vicky Paxton (20) from Motherwell’s HND Music Performance course said:
“The event went really well and there was a great atmosphere. I really enjoyed working with the students from Cumbernauld and hope to do so again in the future.”
