For anyone who even vaguely considers a trade or a management job they shouldn’t hesitate to pursue it as it can surprise you how capable you can become despite any reservations you may have.

It could even introduce you to different roles in the industry that you hadn’t realised were available to you or felt where out of your reach.

Realist?
Realist
Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

This 3 year full-time course aims to develop the skills and knowledge required to work within the dynamic area of music production and technology.

Alongside studio and live recording, this programme develops skills in critical listening and audio analysis, investigations of form and aural training, and music theory. You will also develop skills in the online promotion of music, project leadership, and marketing. Note: Interview required, but this is not a restricted course.

This programme embraces learners from a variety of musical backgrounds, such as instrumentalists, vocalists and group musicians looking to broaden their knowledge and skills, alongside those with ‘non-traditional’ musical skills and experience such as programming, sequencing, recording, mixing, and DJ-ing.

This practical experience is an essential element of our unique Degree programme.
