The secrets of musical success

Posted on 12th April 2016

One of our highly successful graduates, Jamie Ahye visited us on 12 April to meet students and talk about careers in the music industry.

Jamie was recently named as one of Music Week's prestigious "30 under 30" list of the country's best young music industry professionals. Jamie has worked as a label manager for the Warner Music Group, and has worked on projects involving Noel Gallagher, Stereophonics, Macklemore and Johnny Marr.

Jamie spoke frankly and in depth about his work, and the challenges and rewards of life in the music and media industries.

Commercial Music Production Programme Leader Jim Mason said "It's great that Jamie has achieved as much as he has at such a young age and in such a short space of time. The reasons for his success really came through in his attitude and approach to work and life. His drive, ambition, enthusiasm and intelligence have really motivated and inspired our students."

Jamie studied Commercial Music Production and Radio Production at the University of Chester.
