New Term Update

Here at DWS Audio we’re really excited to be entering the autumn term and looking forward to some new developments. With students back in the classroom, we hope to record many more projects than we have been able to over the last eighteen months. Over the summer we were delighted to meet, and work with, some of our new Year 7 students and managed to record over 50 micro-dramas in our pop-up studio. We hope to edit as many of these are possible and post them on the blog over the new few months.

We’re also planning a re-vamp of our weekly drama serial, ROUGH DIAMONDS. Watch this space for more news!
