Practical experience is at the heart of our music technology degree and you will be able to complete a professional production of your own as part of the course. The course will give you a critical understanding of key production processes and professional practices and develop your creativity. It is ideal if you are from a performance background and are seeking to develop your skill set through gaining high level technical appreciation and professional skills. You will learn about operational aspects of music technology including production technologies, audio production, emerging technology, radio production, desktop audio technology, compositional technology, and live performance. You will make full use of the university’s facilities including its 24/7 open access recording studio. Many of our graduates have cited the accessibility of the facilities for personal projects as a key factor in the development of their professional networks. Personal projects over the years have covered a wide array of genres and styles, everything from rock, pop and hip hop to more traditional areas such as world, jazz and classical. As well as the studio spaces, the course makes full use of the facilities in the Centre for the Creative Industries. There are also opportunities to enhance your experience through our relationships with local music venues.
