Music alumnus credits Brunel for getting his career on-song

Jason Charles-Nelson

We were encouraged not just to think this is just the way music is, but our lecturers encouraged us to be challenged in thinking how we can take this further and think outside of the box.

Jason, Alumni

Music Director & Composer, Self-employed

Music BA - 2013

From UK

What are you doing now?

I am currently teaching music in primary schools. I am also composing ad-hoc music for musicals and small feature films.

What was your favourite part of the BA Music course?

I met some great people, and also some real lifelong friends, but what I liked most was how current it was and how it was forward thinking. We were encouraged not just to think "well, this is the way music is" but our lecturers encouraged us to be challenged in thinking "how can we take this further and think outside of the box?".

How did Brunel allow you to develop in your music career?

If feel like it's the place where I went from being a musician to an artist.
