Course summary

The course provides an in-depth knowledge of the contemporary UK and global music business with the focus on real-life applications and employability. Upon completion you will be able to take on multiple roles within the industry, including artist management, booking agent, digital marketing, tour management and live music promotion. The course begins with a focus on business structures and the activities around live promotion and the delivery of recorded music. Alongside an understanding of copyright and entertainment law, you will have the opportunity to work with students across a wide range of courses in club promotions using our onsite venue spaces. As you progress, you will examine specific sectors of the music business in greater detail and put your knowledge into greater practice. You will have the chance to assist in tour promotion and management and work hands-on with the in-house record label, from A&R to marketing. The final year sees a greater emphasis on building your industry networks and a chance to focus on an industry sector of your choice in the major project. Industry knowledge is widened through engagement with a range of speakers and your live music understanding develops through the management of a multi-venue festival event, preparing you for careers in record labels, live events, marketing, festivals and artist management.
