Our music production courses are aimed at anyone who has an interest in producing music – you do not need to play an instrument. If you have a passion for music and you are keen to find out more about producing music and the technology available to music producers then you will enjoy these courses.

In our first course of 2020, you will learn how to create music using MIDI.

Using the software package Logic you will:

  • Learn how to use virtual instrument plug-ins to create a piece of music from scratch
  • Use video or images to inspire you to compose in a particular theme or style

You will be guided by experienced tutors on how to effectively record any instrument using equipment you could have in your home. At the end of the course you will leave with both the raw recording and produced work to compare the two.

You will get to meet and work alongside other local teenagers who are keen to learn about the same music production skills, giving you some useful local contacts that you can work with in the future.

This is an ideal course as a lead on to GCSE or A-level Music or Music Technology, or you can add the course to your CV to demonstrate your passion and commitment to developing a future career in music. Could this be your first step to becoming Britain's next top music producer?

In our second course in July 2020 you will take your recorded audio and produce it to a polished, radio quality sound. Information and registration for that course will be available on our website during the summer term; it is not necessary to have attended the first course in April to attend the second course in July.
