SSR opens new site in London

One of Manchester’s leading music schools, which has helped to shape the history and heritage of the city, has opened a new site in London.
Having invested more than £400,000 transforming a former piano factory in Camden, School of Sound Recording (SSR) has revealed its plans to provide training across a number of disciplines in the capital.
Students will be able to enrol on courses teaching them about audio and sound engineering, music, TV and film production, with the first batch of pupils starting last month and another set due to start this September.
Wendy Breakell, director of education at SSR, told the Manchester Evening News: “We have always attracted a high number of students from the south of England to study in Manchester and therefore it made sense to open a site in the capital.
“The vision for SSR London mirrors our development in Manchester in that we plan to grow by delivering courses that conform to the highest professional standards.”
Indeed, the Manchester-based branch of SSR is considered to be one of the country’s leading music education centres, with more than 300 students studying a wide range of vocational and education courses.
And students already enrolled on the course are sure to be taking advantage of the city’s rich music scene, with PRS for Music recently naming Manchester as home to the most satisfied residents in the UK when it comes to their local music scene.
First established in 1980, SSR has seen bands including The Smiths, Happy Mondays and Stone Roses use its recording and rehearsal facilities.
Furthermore, graduates have gone on to work alongside artists such as Bjork, New Order, Badly Drawn Boy, George Michael, Amy Winehouse and Girls Aloud and for various TV and film companies.
