Performing & Production (Music Performance) UAL Level 3 Diploma at LeSoCo

Course description

This course will provide you with an introduction to the skills needed to be a successful musician and composer. Students will be given an insight into the workings of the music industry, and receive an opportunity to conduct research into the different genres and artists that have shaped the development of popular music today. You will learn repertoire from the 1950s to the present day, for instance; as well as develop keyboard playing skills, and compose original material in both a group performance context and working with Logic software. You will be assessed through live solo and band performances: so excellent levels of attendance and teamwork are required. Students are required to actively participate in performances at live public events, outside of college hours.

Entry requirements

Four GCSEs at grades A*-C; one of which must be GCSE English or GCSE Mathematics. Or successful completion of a Level 2 substantial qualification in a related subject - plus an initial assessment that indicates an appropriate level of English and mathematical ability, and a satisfactory reference.

Future opportunities

This course prepares you for a further year of study towards completing the UAL Level 3 Extended Diploma in Performance and Production Arts on the music performance pathway at Lewisham Southwark College. Alternatively, you can seek employment in the creative and music industries.
