Music Technology at Marlwood School

Course description

The course is intended to provide a choice for those wishing to extend their music education beyond GCSE. You will learn about and use a variety of music technology skills: MIDI sequencing and multi-track recording as well as arranging skills are all key components assessed through practical work. You must complete three tasks which together make the Music Technology Portfolio 1: a sequenced realised performance, a multi-track recording of a commercial song and a creative sequenced arrangement. You will learn to use a variety of hardware devices and music production software, including Logic Studio on Apple Macs. In addition to the practical work, you will study towards a listening and analysis exam (30%). This unit provides you with an opportunity to study the styles most common in popular music. You will have the opportunity to demonstrate this knowledge using aural discrimination skills.
