Glasgow City Council – Education Services
In 2011, Gary Condie of Glasgow City Council’s ‘Determined To’ team identified a need for senior school students to engage with and gain more of an understanding of the various jobs and career paths that exist within the music industry.
A pilot programme began in 5 Glasgow schools in order to assess the viability and determine the reaction of both students and teachers alike…it was a resounding success! Behind The Noise is now in it’s third year working with GCC’s Partnership Team and closely with Education services to continually develop the programme. This year BTN will engage with around 150 students from 14 Glasgow schools.
Renfrewshire Council – Education And Leisure Services
We are delighted to announce our latest partnership with Renfrewshire Council. This year James Cunningham, music co-ordinator of Education and Leisure Services has enrolled all 13 schools in the region to participate in Behind The Noise. We welcome you and very much look forward to working with the students and teachers. We are expecting great things from our new students.

The studios have been operating in Glasgow since the year 2000 and have produced works for many local / international artists and production companies including Gary Numan, Tricky, Shaun Ryder, Rico, Seil Lein, Dabster Productions and Sigma Films.
In 2014 the studios relocated to a newly refurbished unit just off George Square. The large control room makes for an excellent teaching environment and hosts some serious analogue and digital equipment along with a number of top class instruments and sound toys to assist you throughout the creative process.
