The Foundation Degree in Music Production is designed to develop the skills necessary to work in the music for media industry. The music industry is going through a huge transitional period, in which music practitioners are having to seek new areas of employment which require a new skills set. Through the specialist units this course will develop student’s skills and understanding of music composition, technology and production techniques and their direct relationship within the evolving world of new media, giving students the wide range of skills they need to find employment in the growing media industry, or progress to further study. The personal project modules are derived from live industry briefs, allowing you to gain real work based practical experience of creating sound and music to a brief and gaining feedback from potential employers, whilst also developing content for your professional portfolio of work, which is a useful tool to gaining future employment.
