Music Production is advancing; so are we

The world of the music producer is evolving fast. So, it makes sense that music production education is changing too. Technological advances mean that industry-standard equipment and software are more readily available and expectations of the modern music producer are becoming ever broader.

Whichever part of the industry you’ve set your sights on, our new courses are designed from the ground up with the demands and flexibility of today’s fast-moving industry in mind.

Being an electronic music producer today isn’t as clear cut as it used to be. The job today could include various roles such as being a self-sufficient artist or sound designer, a beatmaker, a music software programmer, you name it!

With this in mind, our BA (Hons) Electronic Music Production degree caters for a plethora of industry requirements. Completing this course of study means you’ll be familiar with industry-standard DAWs such as Pro Tools, Ableton and Logic Pro, as well as essential plug-ins and hardware.
