Louis Walsh gives North West College students a music business masterclass
X Factor judge Louis Walsh took time away from the competition auditions to share his secrets for success with students from the North West College in Londonderry yesterday.
The next generation of performers, producers, music engineers and entrepreneurs studying at the campus listened intently to the former manager of some of the UK and Ireland's biggest pop acts.
He was in the city as part of a new programme of masterclasses, Inside The Enterprize Studio, where he talked about his life and times in the music industry as well as giving young people a unique insight into the workings of the entertainment business.
During the masterclass Louis recalled his experience over the past 25 years, and told students: "Anything is possible. If you have the talent, if you have the ambition, and if you're willing to work hard, I believe anyone can do anything."
