The musical instruments and equipment available in the UCS
Great Yarmouth and the Great Yarmouth College rehearsal and recording studios
are inadequate, out dated, dilapidated and are of an unprofessional quality and
condition to rehearse and record with.
As creative arts and music students studying from BTEC
level 2 up to degree level 6 (some of us are now paying the increased tuition
fees of £7500 a year to study) we feel we should bring to your attention our
agreed consensus that the equipment available, not only hinders our ability to
perform proficiently - but affects our desire to rehearse and perform due to
not wanting to use the dilapidated and basic instruments provided. This has a
knock on affect in our educational achievement and creates feelings that we are not appreciated
as musical students.
By signing this petition I ask for UCS Great Yarmouth
Campus and Great Yarmouth College to invest in new, adequate and up-to-date
equipment. To further consult us (the music students who have to use the
facilities on a daily basis to achieve their education) on any potential
purchases, improvements and let us (the music students) have a real input when
it comes to any future equipment to be purchased.
The main areas of concern are as follows:
- The outdated and dilapidated acoustic drum kits which
there are 2 of: are both over 10 years old and either not complete, they are
broken or not maintained to a sufficient usable standard.
- The electric drum kits are refereed to by those of us who
use them as 'lego drumkits' as they are of an inadequate basic level of quality
and are very uncomfortable and un-customisable to play, with most of them
- There is not a left handed drum kit available or any left
handed guitars available, this is not acceptable considering there are left
handed music students in the college.
- The guitar amplifiers are cheap and entry level devices,
most of them being budget brands and with very little versatility.
In summary: We call for UCS Great Yarmouth Campus and Great
Yarmouth College - to address our concerns regarding the inadequate music
equipment and call for immediate investment into new, up-to-date equipment that
will no longer hinder our ability to play, rehearse and reach our full
potential as music students but will further inspire us with improved
versatility and usability allowing us to perform to the best of our ability.
