"The MIX course is a great idea. I wish there had been something like this when I was starting off in the music business"
Freddie Middleton, Music Consultant

"I’m always happy to be asked to participate in the MIX lectures. I’m really impressed with the interest the students show in the radio industry and how it relates to the music industry."
Willie O'Reilly, Group Commercial Director, RTE

"Last year 48 students enrolled for the course and 43 sat the exam three months later. That’s a very high percentage for any course, especially in the music industry where people tend to drop out as soon as they realise that there’s work to be done."
Johnny Lappin, Publisher for Hozier and Celtic Woman

"For me, the MIX course provided an enlightening overview of the Irish music scene. The knowledge provided on how the industry functions is invaluable for anyone hoping to pursue a career in the area."
Roisin Dwyer, MIX Graduate, now Commissioning Editor with Hot Press
