We are delighted to announce that we are now a registered examination centre for Trinity College London.

As the regional centre, Riverside will now host all students from South Glasgow and the surrounding areas who are sitting Trinity's Graded exams in the Rock & Pop genre. Our own Private Tuition clients can now study grades 1-8 on all available instrumentation if they so choose, although we will still offer our familiar flexible learning options outwith Trinity's Rock & Pop framework.

Trinity College London is an internationally recognised exam board focussing purely on the creative and performing arts and we are thrilled that Riverside is now a registered centre for the region. 

Stereo in Glasgow city centre was the venue for the most recent incarnation of 'Riverside Live' which saw 15 bands from across our HNC and HND Music Performance courses take to the stage.

A busy and receptive crowd witnessed some absolute stand out performances from our exceptionally talented students.

Proud, proud, proud!
