What I'll learn
You develop performance skills, background knowledge of music and an understanding of the industry. The focus is on the musician as a member of a group rather than as a solo performer, and the aim of the programme is to enhance your chances of employment in the music industry.
It is broad-based and gives you an introduction to the skills and areas of knowledge needed to contemplate a professional career.
How I'll learn
Areas of study include: performance, music technology, listening skills, the music industry, live sound, recording techniques, music theory, history and context of popular music, and 20th century music.
Our specialist staff are practitioners in the music industry and have wide international connections. They will teach you to perform, to react and play for your audience, to devise music for a variety of contexts, and to embrace the history of this very important area of work.
How I'll be assessed
This course is 100% coursework which means you need to be well organised! Guest speakers, workshops, trips and visits are also embedded into this course. Our new partnership with the SAE Institute means you could work on live projects within creative media production.
