Level 3 Diploma in Music Technology at Andover College

Course description

For anyone with an interest in studio recording, live performance and event management, the BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Music Technology is a two-year qualification featuring a total of twelve units that are assessed through coursework and practical activities. It is the equivalent of two A Levels.
The college has two recording studios capable of recording up to sixteen tracks of simultaneous audio, a multimedia suite featuring industry-standard Pro Tools 10 recording software and a professional theatre for drama and music productions.
There are also opportunities to collaborate with local music venues when planning and organising events.

Successful students will have a keen interest in music, either as a performer or consumer. Experience of music software sequencing or recording is desirable but not essential. A passion for live music is also desirable. There is no requirement to play a musical instrument to study music technology, but those that do will have opportunities to record, produce and perform their own music at events organised throughout the year.

Whilst studying music technology, it is likely that students will have the opportunity to gain additional experience from guest speakers, study trips (including the British Music Experience), university open days and collaborations with local music venues.
