john-paul-muirOne of the primary reasons I chose to stay at Goodenough College was the fantastic facilities on offer for musicians, such as practice rooms and larger recital spaces, as well as its central location.

Enjoying a good quality work space at home, in the form of practice rooms with grand pianos, is a luxury here in London, where there is huge demand for rehearsal space at the music colleges.

The central location of Goodenough College enables me to enjoy the cultural life of London to the fullest extent too. Iconic music venues such as the Barbican Centre, the Southbank Centre, the Wigmore Hall, and Ronnie Scott's are all close by.

The eye-opening inspiration I get from being constantly exposed to world-class artists is one of the reasons I chose to live and study here in London. I have also seen many memorable concerts, particularly at the BBC Proms, from the College’s box at the Royal Albert Hall.
