A Level Music Technology at Wootton Upper School and Arts College
Music Technology, like other forms of computer technology, constantly changes and advances. The new Music Technology specification provides opportunities to embrace recent developments in the field. It involves much practical work and encourages the cultivation of a wide range of skills. Students will have opportunities to:
- sequence MIDI,
- sequence audio,
- record live instruments,
- produce and edit CDs,
- compose and arrange for all instruments,
- multi-track record.
You will need to achieve a minimum grade B in GCSE Music or a Merit in BTEC Music (level 2). You should also have achieved a Credit (C2) in either AiDA or CiDA. Students who have not taken Music will need to complete a taster session with assessment tasks to gauge their aptitude for success on this course. Good sound music theory and keyboard skills are an advantage.
This AS/A2 level in Music Technology can lead to further study in Higher Education (for example at degree level). Music Technology could lead on to a career in a variety of different areas of the music industry. Music technology careers could include work as a:
- sound engineer
- record producer
- web design
