This programme is designed to give you a solid base for work in the dynamic music industry as a creative music technician or allow progression to a higher level course.
The course focuses on technology as a tool for the creative musician. Much of the work involves original composition and production. Each project you complete is designed to be realistic to what you would expect in industry. Colchester Institute has three digital recording studios and a large computer music studio which are continually maintained and upgraded.
The emphasis of the Music Production and Technology Diploma is on practical skills and production and musical awareness underpinned by classroom tuition, academic work and a range of extra-curricular events including workshops and demonstrations. You will complete a number of workshops and demonstrations facilitated by current and ex-industry professionals supported by classroom sessions and extra-curricular activities including supporting community projects.
The assessment is project-based and is of a predominantly practical nature, underpinned by academic work. In addition to your main programme, you will also engage in GEM and GAP activities to develop your English, maths and employability skills.
You will complete the 90 Credit Diploma in your first year and continue to the Extended Diploma in your second year.
