The Level 3 Diploma in Music Technology is a two year course and is equivalent to three A levels. This course is aimed at students that are passionate about music production or sound production as a career. The course covers digital and analogue recording and mixing techniques, music sequencing, music and sound production, marketing, the music industry, music and sound for multimedia, live sound and much more.
The college has two recording studios and four computer music suites (two PC based and two Mac based). In the Music Technology Department the sequences that we use range from Cubase to Pro Tools to Logic Pro.
The course team comprises entirely of qualified teaching staff that have been sourced from industry and remain active within their profession. This often provides promising students with opportunities for work on real productions outside the college and has led to jobs in the industry.
This course is Advanced Learner Loan eligible, which can fully cover the course fee. Please click here for further information about financial support.
