Summary: Getting into the music industry is a tough gig, but our music technology degree gives you a foot in the door. Course details: You perform in and run recording studio sessions. You create, produce, mix and master stereo and surround recordings. You perform and engineer live performances, programme sound synthesisers, set up and run student-led projects including a record label, promotion events or radio station, and create and dub music, sound effects and Foley to video and other media. You get involved in some exciting stuff using the latest state-of-the-art equipment and facilities. These include the same Avid hardware and software used extensively in the music industry, so you develop the skills you need as either a music producer or engineer. As an added bonus, you can take the Level 1 series Avid Pro Tools professional exams for just the cost of the courseware. This is an award of Teesside University delivered in partnership with Middlesbrough College at their Middlehaven campus (campus code 2, call 01642 333333). After the course: Our students follow careers in sound and music production, sound capture (sound engineering), live sound production and engineering (gigs, theatre, events), sound design, processing and control, music for time-based media (film, video), broadcast (radio, television, internet), recording artists, music technology journalism and multimedia authoring.
