We have created this course for you to gain a thorough understanding of contemporary audio recording systems and nurture a wide knowledge-base, centred on their first study instrument or voice. Such skills are vital if you are to succeed in a demanding world. This course follows the major/minor structure with 12 music technology modules and six specific to pop music performance, over the three years. In the final year, our students are able to focus on a selected area of study through the BA project module and their choice of assessments in other modules. The Music Technology major allows students to acquire and develop skills that are appropriate to current sound and music pre and post-production practices. The Pop Music Performance minor consists of performance modules, which, in your first year, allow you individual tuition on your chosen first instrument (guitar, drums, keyboards, vocals or bass). In addition, you will take another stream of modules that provide grounding in arranging, composition and performance techniques. The course covers both practical and theoretical approaches and aims to integrate them, thus providing you with a rounded educational experience, which is vital if you are to succeed in a demanding world.
