Course summary

Modern technology now means we can conjure a musical universe on a computer keyboard as easily as a piano keyboard, and in the comfort of our bedrooms. This practice-based degree cultivates artistic development and is designed to make you self-sufficient in the creation, recording and performance of music. You will enhance your perception of the diverse characteristics of music and sound by exploring a broad range of themes. These include music technology, electronic music interaction, sound design, instrumental tuition, songwriting, composing and arranging, recording live music, studio recording, production and mastering, social media and employment strategies. The programme, which is ideal for musicians and computer musicians, also covers areas in sound for picture and soundtracks. You will apply your music and sound skills to areas such as film, TV, media, and theatre, working in a modern learning environment and utilising technology to bring your music to fruition.

Assessment method

The programme is assessed entirely by coursework. This includes practical desktop (DAW/MIDI) and studio-based recording assignments, report writing, blogs, videos and oral presentations. You will also have the opportunity to complete a dissertation or practical project in the final year of the programme. There are no formal written examinations as part of the current assessment methods for any Music Production module on this degree, though one of the optional Language modules is part-assessed by written examinations, should you choose to learn a language as an integrated element of the programme.
