Music production: overview

If you share our passion for music and technology, and are motivated to produce great music, we want to work with you. We offer 4 different undergraduate degrees which allow you to focus on your specialist interests.

Our courses enable you to become a creative and reflective worker: to be a producer, musician and entrepreneur, working as a successful digital musician and pushing the boundaries of production. We will help you to establish and strengthen your skills, build your portfolio of productions and find your place in the creative industries.

There are many ways that music production is used in the music industry. You might be interested in creating electronic music ‘in the box’, or maybe you are a singer-songwriter who wants to sell your music. You could be entrepreneurial and aspire to run your own music production business, or you could be an all round music producer and want to see where that expertise will take you.
