Program description

Composition and performance are as important as recording, mixing, and mastering.

Our BA (Hons) Music Production course teaches you to create music and sound. The course covers the "how" and "why" of music and sound creation, giving students a greater understanding of ideologies, workflows, and future-proof technical techniques. This course prepares students for careers in music and creative industries.

The course will teach you how to apply your technical skills and creativity in live and studio settings. You'll know how to collaborate, work with artists, and record songs. You'll also learn how to make your own electronic music and become an artist, remixer, programmer, or game audio designer.

During the course, you'll work with cutting-edge equipment and software in our high-tech facilities. You'll know the technical needs of a professional creative brief and how to address it using production principles and terminology. Our world-class industry professors will guide and encourage you throughout the creative process.
