The degree allows you to build your programme in Music Production and Music Business, drawing on current and historical practice to provide a stimulating context in which to create and promote music. Music Production covers live and recorded production and involves study of composition, arranging, performance, music technology and studio production. Music Business introduces you to key music business concepts and practices, with a focus on marketing, law and the live industry. Music Sociology investigates the cultural and social roles and context of commercial music, and how music has developed as a force in pop culture and the mass media.
This degree was the first in the UK to offer the opportunity to learn, practise and experiment with the artistic and business strategies in today’s music industry, and welcomes applicants with a business or music production interest. The development and delivery of the course is guided by advice given by a team of leading music industry figures, and draws on producers, musicians and business people for its teaching staff.
