Robbie Williams’ advice for Liverpool students chasing music dreams

Robbie Williams urged the students to “create, innovate, innovate” as he warned them “No one will give it to them, so go get it.”

The star was speaking while visiting the Liverpool Music Academy (LMA) to take part in some classes and offer invaluable advice to those studying at the Media Academy – which he is co-owner.

In a Q&A held at the Royal Court Theater, Williams told the students, “Create, create, create. Creators are all the same, we’re not criminals, we’re magicians.”

Williams later added: “All the stars you’ve been looking for have been on the same journey at some point.

“I was thinking if not me, then who, then now, if not you, then who?”

“There has never been a better time than now to go ahead and do it yourself — the software, technology and platforms are out there, you can do it all and get your stuff out there.

“No one is going to give it to you, so go get it.

“For me there was no left, no right, just this dead focus to do so.

“You won’t always feel confident but you can always be brave, so don’t underestimate your talent, don’t underestimate what you can be.

“Let your obsessions be your guide and use your illusions to guide you.”

Williams then led the students in a stage performance of “Angels” before visiting the Media Academy’s Metquarter to watch the students in action.

Williams said: “I fell in love with the LMA chorus back in the X Factor days and had to be a part of this.

“The talent here is incredible and I can see myself in all of them.

“It’s amazing to see creative, like-minded people in a safe place to be themselves and be who they want to be.

“We want to support, love and develop them to achieve everything they dream of.”

Richard Wallace, founder and co-owner, said: “We speak with Robbie on a weekly basis about the students, their performance, and how we can support their development and chances of progressing to graduation and beyond.

“Coming to campus and having hands-on training in the classroom and studios gives students insight into the motivation and commitment that is required.

What an inspiration to know that a world star has supported you. The students are already looking forward to Ruby’s next visit.”
