  What You Will Learn

Original songwriting, composing and arranging.

We will support you in developing your key instrument; and explore another with you. You’ll learn to play well known songs from a wide range of different genres and then explore how to write and perform your own music.
Students will also have the opportunity to collaborate with other creative subjects, such as dance, acting, fine art, photography and media. The Creative and Digital Academy is home to a vibrant portfolio of subjects who all work together to support each other’s growth. You will also record using analogue and digital equipment and develop digital sequencing skills as well as recording and production techniques.
The course will focus on live performance and you will get the opportunity to perform at a wide variety of venues including The Royal Cornwall Show, pubs and clubs, and our very own Keay Theatre.

The ability to write and perform original material is fundamental to the course. Becoming a unique and creative artist will help with employability in this competitive landscape and also develop your creativity.


You will also experiment with arranging music.

Writing for film/games and moving image:

Using sequencing to write and compose original music for games and film is an exciting part of the course. This is a growing sector of the music industry and will give the learners opportunity to discover more about this incredibly rich and creative area.
Students will also have the opportunity to collaborate with other creative subjects such as fine art and media.

Recording using analogue and digital equipment:

You will develop digital sequencing skills as well as recording and production techniques.
There is always a link between old and new in the music Industry with recording techniques and genres reflecting the music of the past as well as looking forwards. The ability to use analogue equipment will give a working sound engineer or producer another string to their bow in this increasingly competitive market.

Performance:

The course will focus on live performance and we will actively work to showcase student-skills and deliver entertaining, interesting shows within the community.
As part of the course, we will put on some interesting and relevant events - with professional musicians and bands both performing, and delivering workshops.

  Entry Requirements

Four GCSEs at grade 3 and above.

  Work Experience

Work Experience is vital in developing skills in the industry, itself, as well as giving you an opportunity to network and pave the way for future employment.
You will need to find 60 hours of work experience - this can be in a range of settings: music in schools, music production, events management, music recording, and so on. The list is endless! You can receive support in finding placements with our incredible WEX team.

  Assessment

Assessment is via practical performance and reflective journal writing, only (no exams).

  Progression

Upon completion of the Level 2 Diploma in Music, you will be able to apply for the L3 Diploma and Extended Diploma in Music. Once you have excelled in those two years of study you will be able to apply for a vast range of music schools and universities.
