College students are rockin’ away with music award

MOTHERWELL College is celebrating after its HNC and HND music / rock and pop course received a top award.

The course was named Scotland’s Music Course of the Year at the inaugural Scottish New Music Awards (SNMA) in Glasgow recently.

David McShane, head of the department, said: “To achieve such affirmation and be deemed as one of the best places to study music in Scotland is a great honour.

“I am thrilled the hard work of the department has been recognised, as we continue to strive to offer our students the best facilities and music programmes at Motherwell College.

“We have been enthused by the positive reaction we’ve had from students and industry experts since the introduction of the course last year.”
