THIS COURSE IS FOR S5 & S6 PUPILS WHO ARE STILL AT
This course will provide an introduction to working in the
areas of the music business and sound production. Due to the closely linked
nature of these two subjects and their ongoing economic growth in the creative
industries, the course provides an excellent opportunity to gain a grounding in
this area of employment by taking part in projects involving the creation and
marketing of musical products.
You will learn both creative and technical processes in
sound production including composition, MIDI sequencing, editing, arranging and
mixing. In addition to this you will learn about a range of job roles and
organisations in the music industry, methods for promotion and distribution,
branding and marketing.
The course is taught by lecturers with years of experience
working in the music industry at our sector-leading facilities at our Milton
Road campus. These include 5 SSL studios and 4 TOFT studios, over 10
fully equipped rehearsal rooms and a 100+ seat auditorium.
Collaboration is at the core of the creative industries and
our curriculum, and the structure of the course is mainly practical and
project-based focusing on real industry examples and practices.
