Music Production Level 3 UAL (University of the Arts London) at Westminster Kingsway College

Course description

What will I study?
This course is for students who wish to follow a career in production or sound engineering and related industries. You will have the opportunity to study sequencing and sampling, sound engineering, general musicianship, the music industry, live sound and DJing, as well as music theory using professional industry software packages, including Logic Pro, Pro Tools and Traktor.

Although the emphasis is on practical and performance work you will need to complete written assignments and develop your skills as an informed and reflective practitioner through evaluative logbooks and rehearsal diaries. You will learn to evaluate and comment critically on both professional work and your own creative practice, gaining insight into the wider performing arts industry through contextual and industry studies.
 
Many of your teachers are professional musicians, which gives the course a real work focus. During your course you will be engaging in work activities aimed at giving you an insight into working in this industry.
