Students asked for feedback on new musical instrument


ONE of the world’s leading musical instrument manufacturers has asked students from Warrington for feedback on their next piece of technology.
Two representatives from Yamaha brought the new instrument to Priestley College to get the opinions of those on the Music and Music Technology courses.
Tutor Michael Grainger said: “We are not allowed to say anything about the piece of equipment, but I can say it was different to anything I’ve seen before and used the latest technology.”
Yamaha senior planning specialist Kevin MacManus was joined at Priestley by Nozomu Fujiwara who had flown in from Japan to work on the development of the new instrument.
About 50 students gave their thoughts including David Hindle, who studies BTEC music technology.
The former Birchwood High pupil said: “It was an eye-opening experience.
“It felt like they really wanted to listen to what we had to say and there could even be a chance we could see some of our ideas in the final design.”
Priestley was chosen to take part due to its connections with Steinberg – a leading producer of music recording, arranging and editing software.
Last year the college was named one of only 16 training centres for Steinberg in the country.
