Leeds College of Music has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
This degree will give students the skills to become sophisticated composers for the film music industry. Developed to meet the industry’s demand, this is the first course of its kind in a UK conservatoire. It uniquely combines one-to-one composition tuition, Mac lab production software sessions, and a variety of supporting topics such as harmony, orchestration and historical, cultural and professional studies. Students will have access to a unique library of notated soundtrack scores and cues, and the conservatoire’s well equipped Apple Mac suites not to mention established links with the film music industry.
Thanks to the unique modular structure of the BA provisions at LCoM as well as studying film music, students get chance to choose from a variety of optional modules. This is particularly relevant to film music students because film score composers write in many different styles and employ varying musical genres.
The Degree is assessed via practical and written assessments and will involve composing, arranging and production of film music. Periodically students will be required to produce notated scores (handwritten or Sibelius) to accompany their work.
