LMA co-owner Robbie Williams tells LMA students: ‘We’re not Muggles, we’re Magicians’

LMA co-owner and global superstar Robbie Williams visited Here East, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park this week to get up close with the LMA students with an exclusive Q&A answering student questions and impromptu performance, tour of the LMA Campus and even got involved in some classes with students for some extra advice and support.

The day started with a Q&A for LMA students at the Here East Theatre space. LMA students had the opportunity to ask Robbie their question about his career, his inspirations and even his favourite karaoke song!

Robbie encouraged the students to “Create, create, create. Us creatives are all the same, we’re not Muggles, we’re Magicians!”

Other RW quotes on the day: “All the stars you look up have been on the same journey at some point. I used to think if not me then who, so now it’s, if not you then who?
“There’s never been a better time to just get on and do it yourself, software, technology and platforms are there that you can do it all and get your stuff out there. Nobody is going to give it to you so go and get it.

“For me there was no left, no right, just this dead focus to do this. You won’t always feel confident but can always be brave so don’t minimise your own talent, don’t minimise what you can be. Let your obsessions be your guide and use your delusions to drive you.”

The Q&A ended with Robbie leading an impromptu rendition of Angels with the LMA students joining in. Robbie went on to visit the LMA Here East Campus and got to see some of the students in action.

Spending over two hours touring the acting department, dance studios, watching musical theatre performances and encouraging the film & TV students to write and create whatever they think is missing in the industry.

Robbie said: “I fell in love with the LMA Choir back in the X Factor days and just had to be part of this.

“The talent here is incredible and I can see myself in all of them. It’s amazing to see like-minded creative people in a safe space to be themselves and be what they want to be.

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

Richard Wallace, founder and co-owner, said: “We speak with Robbie on a weekly basis about the students, their performances and how we can support their development and opportunities moving forward up to and beyond graduation.

“Coming to campus and getting hands-on in the classes and studios gives the students a great insight into the drive and commitment needed. What an inspiration knowing a global superstar has got your back!

“The students are already looking forward to Robbie’s next visit.”
