A Level Music For Adults
Posted 23 April 2007 - 21:10
It couldn't have been more awkward because it was on the other side of the city and meant I had to travel in 4 days per week for a 1-1/2 hr lesson + choir practice which was not necessarily immediately before or after a lesson, requiring more hanging around.
The second year I found a college closer to my home that did a weeks' worth in one day and was prepared to take me on as a 2nd year working alongside the 1st years. (A paying student is always welcome!)
In both cases I was nearly 20 years older than most others in the classes (there were another couple of adults at the first one) and didn't necessarily find myself mixing too well with the youngsters (what massive egos some 'arty' kids have!) so made friends with the tutors instead.
Most of the students were nice, the coursework was a joy and the gigs were tremendous fun. I thoroughly enjoyed (nearly) every minute. I would recommend this if no other option is open. A mixed age class can calm some high spirits, but be prepared to hold back a bit if you find you know most of the answers; give the others a chance!

City Lit college in London have a large range of adult music courses- worth checking if you're in London, not sure if they do A Level but I had an adult student taking a Musical Theatre diploma course who was thinking about joining their Aural classes.
