BTEC Diploma in Music Technology at Swinton Academy

Course description

Music Technology

Since the introduction of Music Technology in 2007 we have achieved outstanding results providing students with a firm platform to continue further study at University or start working in the Music Industry. We passionately believe in limiting the number of students taken on the course to allow all students adequate access to facilities in order to create and develop the skills required by a vibrant and thriving industry.

Our purpose built recording facility supported by the industrial experience of course tutors allows our students the opportunity to gain hands on experience in using industry standard hardware and software including ProTools as used in most major recording studios. 

The courses are aimed at anyone with a keen interest in music and sound production including students wishing to work in the industry or anyone already working in the industry who wishes to increase their skills and gain a qualification.
