THE COURSE EXPERIENCE.
We know that the best way to develop as a music producer is by producing a lot of music. Our courses put practical work at the heart of the learning experience. You will be immersed in a world of production projects, many of them with external artists and professional clients.
The vast majority of professional music producers work as freelancers rather than for a studio or production house, taking their work on a project by project basis and building up a portfolio career. Our courses offers a realistic ‘work experience’ of this kind of self-employment. But you also gain a wealth of transferable skills that are very attractive to employers, widening your career options.
Music Production is a dynamic and fascinating field that is ever-evolving. For example, in order to provide you with the greatest insight into the industry, we organise an annual Industry Day, where music industry professionals come to speak to our students about current issues, and deliver a series of group workshops that give you the opportunity to delve more deeply into these issues in a practical way.
There is also an annual trip to Abbey Road, but this is much more than just a visit. You will work with us and the Abbey Road engineers to produce a real project. In previous years this has included film sound tracks for the BFI, and a ‘Live in Studio 2’ album featuring various artists including The Magic Numbers, The Leisure Society and Matt Deighton.
Our students are a huge part of our community We get to know them really well as individual producers with unique styles and career goals.
