What You Will Learn
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 but also develop your creativity.
You will also experiment with arranging music.
Writing for film/games and moving image:
The ability to use 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.
The course will focus on live performance and we will actively work to showcase student’s skills and deliver entertaining, interesting shows within the community.
We will, as part of the course, put on some interesting and relevant events with professional musicians and bands both performing and delivering workshops.
We live in an exciting time where technological advances mean opportunity but greater competition. Freelance writing and session playing opportunities will arise for confident and gifted musicians. Performing will always be an option too.
Work experience in local radio or shadowing sound technicians will help you to gain confidence and contacts on a local level.
Get in a Band, get your music out there. Contact journalists and National DJ’s. Record an Album using College equipment and space and promote it online. The harder you work on the business side of things the more interest you will get.
