On Friday 30th September four Music Technology students from MCMAs 6th Form took a tour round one of the UK’s most prestigious Performing Arts establishments, Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts or LIPA for short.

The group were welcomed and introduced to LIPA by Mark Featherstone-Witty, the founder and CEO of the Institute.  Mark explained how, inspired by the 1980 Alan Parker film Fame, he set up the higher education institute from scratch, with former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney.

Ben France, Jake France, Jake Gordon and Gift Zama are currently going through the process of applying to University through the UCAS system, so the visit couldn’t have come at a better time.  All four students were impressed by LIPA’s facilities and found the trip useful, but are keeping their options open with more visits to Universities planned.

The visit showed MCMA’s Sixth Form is the ideal launchpad into higher education.

LIPA’s unique qualities were brought home with a performance by third year student Alex Hulme, of his new single, “There was a boy”.
