What we offer

If you’re looking for a career in Sound Production and Engineering then this course will be ideal for you, it takes you through the foundations of studio life.

The course in Audio Engineering and Music Production introduces students to the world of audio and music, from both recording studio and computer based perspectives. Students will have completed the initial steps towards becoming professional audio engineers and music producers in this first part of the course, alongside transferable skills and knowledge that will help them in moving into other areas of study or industry.

During the year, students gain a solid foundation in the theory and practise of recording and mixing music. Students will apply basic engineering skills in the main studios, and develop their music production skills by working on a variety of computer based projects.
