The Creative Music Production (Cert HE) course is a 1 year thorough, well-rounded exploration of both the practical and theoretical aspects of music production.

Our expert tutors – who are all successful music producers and musicians in their own right – will guide you through the exciting world of music production in studio, live and digital music making settings. You’ll learn to create and produce original music, while developing your industry-relevant technical and entrepreneurial skills at the same time.

The course will push you out of your creative comfort zone, with regular opportunities to write and compose to brief, explore new styles and genres, and collaborate with the wider ICMP community – made up of both fellow music production students, and vocalists, guitarists, bassists, drummers, keyboard players and songwriters also studying at ICMP.

There will be plenty of chances to immerse yourself in the music industry via a series of real-world music business events, guest lectures, masterclasses and more, so you’ll leave ICMP with a solid understanding of how the music industry works and exactly what you need to do to progress your career in music production.

Classes take place in ICMP’s high-tech Mac Labs, state-of- the-art recording studios and dedicated teaching spaces, using industry-standard hardware and software. All students can book ICMP’s amazing facilities for personal use outside of class hours, seven days a week, free of charge, meaning you’ll have ongoing access to the very best music production kit, including controllers and loop stations, vocal processors and effects pedals, instruments, PAs, microphones, mobile recording rigs, writing rooms, studios, and more.

This course will prepare you for a career in music production, in roles such as producer, DJ, artist, composer, sound engineer and more.
