The lecture series for this course will follow two interdependent, integrated streams. One will develop students’ historical, theoretical and critical awareness of the relationship between arts, cultural entrepreneurship and business management from a variety of viewpoints – film, music, dance, theatre, festival, gallery etc. The other series will be more professionally focused exploring the changing environment with respect to business methods (finance, planning and the law), and marketing and branding strategies within the creative industries. The practical seminars and workshops for the course will focus around important case studies to highlight different business models within the creative industries from SMEs to national organisations as well as allowing an opportunity to explore important, innovative approaches to marketing and communications strategies within the sector. The programme will increasingly introduce professionalised; work placement elements from the second part of Level I. So that by the programme’s end, students will have gathered experience of working with external professional creative industries organisations. Music Production The study of Music Production gives you the opportunity to investigate the creative, technical and theoretical exploration of one of the most universal art forms. All while being exposed to aspects of the music business and industry, as well as its many historical and theoretical concepts. Drawing on the diverse musical heritage of Liverpool, students of Music Production at Liverpool Hope explore the production of musical performance and composition of music across a broad range of topics and genres, such as popular, classical, jazz and electronic. Your studies will focus on music production and will be underpinned by technical, theoretical and historical areas of enquiry, led by staff with a broad range of teaching, professional and research specialisms. Music Production is part of our School of Creative & Performing Arts, based in the purpose-built Capstone Building at our Creative Campus. The Capstone is home to a collection of musical instruments that cater for all genres, including a Steinway Model D two harpsichords, a vibraphone and timpani. We also have a suite of sound-proofed practice rooms equipped with Steinway pianos, and four electronic studios. The Creative Campus at Liverpool Hope University has some newly upgraded recording studio facilities. The Cornerstone Building’s existing recording studio has had a major overall featuring 16 additional preamps in the form of Audient ASP880s and a new SSL Nucleus 2 Dark console, all seated into an Argosy Halo-K Workstation. Combining this with a brand new microphone package, this room is very well kitted out to record all varieties of music. Amongst the microphone package are AKG C414s, Shure SM7Bs, Shure Beta57s and Beta58s, EV RE20 and the list goes on.
