    The recording facilities at NWRC are second to none. I use my free studio time to demo and record new songs. You wouldn't get this anywhere else at such a professional level.

    My Apprenticeship is so varied. One day I'm fixing things, putting flanges and pipes together, and the next day I'm doing something completely different such as changing drives.
