Course programme

One of our most popular courses - this practical programme teaches expertise in a range of areas - in particular DJ-ing and music production. Taking you through all the steps of production, from laying down your original sounds to mixing, mastering and marketing your final productions, you’ll also work towards achieving your studio licence, giving you access to FREE studio time in the evening.

  • DJing and Music Production: You’ll be introduced to the Electronic and Urban music industries. This practical term focuses on the two most popular areas – DJing and music production. You’ll complete a series of short assessments to achieve a studio licence, giving you access to FREE studio time in the evening.
  • Composition and Keyboard: You’ll begin to develop a critical ear during listening skills sessions and will continue to develop DJ skills by preparing for a live DJ set. You’ll also develop your music production skills by developing your composition and keyboard-playing techniques. You’ll look behind the scenes at the music industries, learning about how the industry functions and the roles within it.
  • Advanced Production Techniques: You’ll continue with music production, learning about sampling and synthesis techniques. You’ll also produce a final portfolio of music that you’ve composed over the year, and continue to develop recording studio techniques while producing your own songs.
  • Live Performance: You’ll also be introduced to live performance techniques to create a live set of music using Ableton software that will be performed at the end of term. You’ll also investigate the role of working freelance within the music industries and begin to seriously consider your next move after the course ends. In addition to researching jobs within the industry, you ‘ll learn how to apply for degree-level courses and have a tour of our Higher Education centre, learning more about our Foundation Degree in Music Technology.
  • Major Recording Project: You’ll return to the recording studio and participate in your final major recording project. You’ll work to a budget, managing recording sessions, booking artists and working with leading industry mentors. In addition, you’ll expand your repertoire of production skills by exploring the use of sound for moving image – creating your own compositions to accompany a short film or advertisement.
  • The Final Product: For the final term you’ll explore the process of mastering; polishing the recordings you completed in Term 5. You’ll also learn how to market a music product and promote your own events, including an end-of-course album launch party that you will plan with your group.
