Fuse creation and practice with our Professional Music Performance and Production course
- Prepare for a range of careers in areas such as performing, composing, producing, teaching, sound design and freelancing.
- Become multi-skilled and digitally literate: study music production, culture, contexts, and how music is used in other fields.
- Focus on professional practice, employability, enterprise and entrepreneurship to become a resilient music professional.
Your first year introduces you to the professional music fundamentals of music theory, sound production and live performance, with your skills and knowledge developed in the classroom, in the studio or on stage.You also take part in workshops to improve your musicianship, rehearsal and performance techniques, and recording skills. The second year continues to develop your performance and studio skills, while you'll also be offered the chance to learn more about live event management. You'll gain an understanding of the music industry from a business and socioeconomic perspective, and work by yourself and with others to produce your own music in response to studies in composition and songwriting. The course culminates in you producing a professional portfolio to demonstrate your skills in your artistic specialism, as a performer, producer, composer or engineer, for example. You'll also undertake a research project in an area of academic interest, and engage with the music industry in a professional context via a work placement, series of performances, or production of a music product.
Assessment is via a combination of practical exams, written exams and coursework.
