If you are hoping to go into the music industry, this course aims to help you develop your skills as a composer, both with an instrument and in the studio. It’s designed for people who want to mix traditional music with computer-based production and composition to create some exciting results. We’ll give you the chance to develop your skills in acoustic and computer-based composition, as well as sound production and orchestration. We take a broad view, studying everything from studio recording and musicology to computer manipulation of sound. It could give you a great grounding to go onto a career in media, sound, music production or many other exciting sectors. You’ll be able to use our professionally designed studios, and take your pick from lots of recording and composition studio space. Rest assured, we update our equipment regularly too, so you’re kept up to date with the industry. You’ll be joining a large community of music and music technology students. There’s always lots of creativity and experimentation going on, and you’ll be studying alongside aspiring classical and pop musicians, recording engineers, programmers, audio electronic experts and interface designers. Every year we also get involved with the world-famous annual Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival and label-defying Electric Spring Festival, so you can experience contemporary music in action. The course is accredited by JAMES, the consortium of music, entertainment and media industry organisations.
