Course content

Your studies will incorporate the production of popular recorded music from both a theoretical and practical standpoint. You will deconstruct and analyse the process of record production, enhancing your ability to understand today’s music industry.

The course has been designed to combine the technical skills of advanced recording, digital signal processing and mixing with 'human skills', such as managing sessions, pre-production, developing your career, communication and performance in the studio.

As you progress through the course, you will become more aware of social and consumer trends in the music industry, and create a personal development plan to help you achieve your career goals.
