Music Technology & Production Course  

Description:

This course combines music composition/arranging using dedicated software on the computer and studio recording/mixing techniques. It is designed for beginners and/or people with little knowledge on these subjects. It takes 2 years to complete. 

 

The first year will give the student a good understanding of how to use effectively the DAW (Digital audio Workstation) on the computer and some VST instruments and FX plugins. You will also be able to apply simple audio recording and mixing techniques for instruments and voices. 

 

The second year you will move into more complicated composition and arranging techniques including music for the Media (TV, Films). You will also learn to record more complicated sources where a number of microphones should be used at the same time and how to mix and master bigger projects. There are also chapters on synthesis where you learn to create your own sounds from scratch, sampling techniques and even chapters about how to copyright and promote your music.

Who is it for:

By the end of these courses you will be in good condition to make your first steps as a composer, producer or sound engineer. No course can teach you everything about music technology and production since this area has become so vast and there are so many options and routes to follow. However it will give you a good understanding of some industry standard composing and production methods in different styles and how to apply them effectively. From there on it is up to you what to do with the knowledge you gained. 

Facilities:

The course will take place both at our newly designed Music Technology Lab and the Recording Studio. The students will have access to great software, hardware, microphones and other studio equipment and various instruments.
