Course summary

Electronic Music | Film Music | Sonic Arts | Game Audio | Live Electronics | Popular Music Production | New Media

The Electronic Music Department provides a range of specialist disciplines within which to study a wide array of electronic and produced music, from experimental Sonic Art to mainstream Film Scoring.

Dedicated world-class teaching and state-of-the-art facilities prepare you for a career in this growing and fast-paced industry.


Electronic and produced music represents one of the largest growth areas in the music industry today, and suitably skilled electronic musicians can enjoy a wealth of vocational opportunities. At undergraduate level, our approach is deliberately vocational, reflecting the distinctive character of conservatoire training.

Students receive a weekly one-to-one lesson in their specific discipline with one of the Department’s expert professors, allowing for a totally individualised approach to developing skill and artistic excellence. This core approach is supported by a range of common techniques classes and whole Department creative workshops. Regular visiting professionals further enrich the curriculum with vital insights into the realities of working as a fulltime musician.

Major projects undertaken by the Department reflect real-world scenarios as closely as possible; recent partnerships have included EMI Production Music, Native Instruments, Barbican Film and the electronic instrument developer, ROLI. There are regular opportunities to produce hybrid electro-acoustic music with our Guildhall Session Orchestra.

Cross-departmental collaboration and experimentation are actively encouraged. All Electronic Music students work across year groups through a series of collaborative projects within
weekly creative workshops.
