I also want to show that Tileyard education is an accepting and tolerant community, that provides a range of services to help support students who may be facing educational or creative development barriers. A place where students came come to thrive and flourish, no matter who you are or where you’re from your always welcome here!”
I really enjoyed my time studying at Tileyard, the course was very engaging, the staff where super supportive and understanding, and the students were just fantastic!! “Studying at Tileyard has dramatically accelerated my knowledge of the industry and the mechanics of music marketing whilst building my confidence and giving me an international network of contacts for my career ahead.”
Her main aims and motivations are to help diversify the music industry landscape, enhance creativity within disadvantaged and underrepresented communities, improve representation, access needs and requirements, as well as help educate and inform others of the barriers certain groups and communities face.

She currently manages a dance/ electronic house artist and is looking to form the first commercial transgender girl group in the UK.
