Music Technology & Performance Level 3 Diploma at Somerset College
You will choose either the Performance or the Technology pathway. These are separate routes although students integrate on both pathways.
Whether you are interested in playing in bands, electronic music production or even classical music, this course can help you break into the music industry. It is ideally suited for musicians who prefer to play music rather than simply write about it.
You can choose to specialise in classical music, pop or modern music and be asked to play for the Music Technology students in order for them to record your track.
- Practice and develop your skills in your own chosen instrument
- The music industry
- Music theory
- Critical listening skills
- Music notation
- World music
- Basic music technology
You will also get to work with paying clients, gaining invaluable work experience in a professional setting.
It is expected that you will be a musician with some experience in playing an instrument. You also need to have a minimum of five GCSEs at grade C and above, including a C in English Language or a Level 2 Diploma in Music at Merit grade or above.
Throughout the year you will work on various projects with assessment through practical and written work. There will be regular performances of pieces, as well as opportunities to be recorded and aired on local radio.
This course will provide the UCAS points needed to progress to University.
