Course summary

This accredited BSc Music Production will teach you the latest production techniques at the same time as developing your creative vision and understanding of the commercial music environment.

WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE?

Music Production is accredited by Joint Audio Media Education Support (JAMES), a consortium of industry professionals that promote excellence in music education. There is an emphasis on practical studio skills, which you can perfect in our outstanding recording studios and music technology labs. There’s also the option of a year’s work placement.

IS THIS COURSE FOR YOU?

Choose this course if you want to explore the process of sound recording and production at the same time as developing your awareness of the commercial environment and how best to promote your music.

HOW YOU WILL LEARN

During practical studio sessions, you will learn to prepare, record, process and edit material to create a finished product. You’ll also conduct lab-based experiments in areas like acoustics or electronics. Thanks to our connections in the music business - Avid, Apple’s music products training division, Steinberg, Yamaha Commercial Audio and more - there will be plenty of opportunities to complete real projects, gain work experience, and hear from visiting performers and industry representatives.

OPPORTUNITIES AND EXPERIENCES

We are at the forefront of developments in 3D sound, so we have specialist equipment related to this. We’ll encourage you to collaborate with students on other arts courses, such as video, graphics, sound and light and technical theatre. These team projects broaden your experience and understanding; particularly of working with other professionals.

CAREERS AND EMPLOYABILITY

Sound and music technology is important in almost every aspect of the entertainment industry. Sound recordists, music producers, audio engineers, broadcasters, musicians, composers, film-makers, computer game designers and sound designers all use music technology in some form or other. Our music technology and production graduates have found success in many fields including production and studio work, outside broadcast management and web design.
