You will need to have your own instrument, although larger instruments such as keyboards and drum kits will be available for practice sessions. You should always provide your own drumsticks or leads. You will need headphones and data storage tools such as USB pens and CDs, as well as standard academic materials. To enable the studios to function efficiently there is an annual materials fee of £120.
