Course summary

This course focuses on the growing demand for electronic music-based professionals and develops relevant skills and expertise to industry level. This highly practical course has a strong emphasis on current music and studio production, integrating technology and creativity with entrepreneurship skills. SRC’s partnership with The Market Place Theatre will allow you to benefit from performance and production work in one of Ireland's leading venues. You will work alongside a team of experienced specialist tutors, who are highly skilled and qualified musicians, engineers, composers, promoters and producers, to develop real life projects that will both inspire and challenge. To this end we are delighted to announce our new partnership with The Drake Project and the Aspire Academy. Your career development is at the core of what we do and helping you shape your own future is really important to us! The course is 16 hours per week for 2 years.

“We have had a close partnership with the Music department at SRC for many years and regularly accept SRC students onto Stage 2 of our Music programmes at Queen’s. The SRC students joining us are always highly creative and technically proficient thanks to the thorough and excellent instruction they receive from the Music team at SRC."
