Equivalent to year one of our BA (Hons) Music Production & DJ Performance, this Certificate of Higher Education is for people who live for music and have an interest in DJing. Now more than ever, the distinction between producers and DJs growing slimmer; both talents are needed to complement each other, if you want the widest platform for your music. Practical lectures take place two days per week and outside of lectures you can make use of the the fully stacked Pioneer DJ Studio. Developed by music industry professionals who have worked with the likes of Pharrell Williams and N.E.R.D, Black Eyed Peas, The Killers, Swedish House Mafia and many more, and featuring top software packages such as Native Instruments' Komplete, this course also includes free entry to Apple's Logic 101 exam for Logic Pro users. Class sizes are strictly limited to 16 and each student has their own workstation and DJ set up in class and the practice studios. The course is taught on either Logic Pro or Ableton Live, depending on your preference. This CertHE is worth 120 internationally recognised credits at level 4. If you wish, you can progress onto year 2 of this programme and complete the DipHE, then in turn progress onto the final year of our BA (Hons) Music Production & DJ Performance Degree.
