2 11. Aims of the Programme The specific aims of the Music Production programme are to: Develop the practical skills and knowledge required to work in the dynamic area of music production and technology. Develop both creative strategies and an underpinning practical and theoretical knowledge of music production techniques through creative assignments and projects. Provide the student with a broad critical, analytical and contextual understanding of Music Production techniques that will equip the graduate with skills that can be directly transferred into the work place. Give the student opportunities to develop the skills and attributes needed in order to devise original creative works in the areas of sound recording and design, music technology and related media and to provide personal presentation and project development skills. The course aims to cover key areas such as; Creative Production Skills Recording techniques Sequencing Sampling Sound Processing Sound and Vision for Installation Project development and leadership E-Music and Marketing Research skills The general aims for Music Production are as follows Creative skills 1.1 to develop recording/production skills and making (composing/devising) skills 1.2 to develop technical and academic skills Professional attributes 2.1 to develop knowledge of the industry and professional standards; 2.2 to develop an understanding of personal capability and competence. Throughout the three levels of the programme, five creative skill-specific aims exist. They are: 1. to increase knowledge of music production technologies and improve practical skills in this area 2. to formulate strategies to enable the creating of new work; 3. to apply experimental processes which result in innovative practice; 4. to produce work with respect to other media and the curriculum of associated courses 5. to ensure accurate self-evaluation of personal abilities and group and audience requirements. 2

3 The professional attributes are addressed by strategies designed to: encourage the analysis and assessment of problems and the testing of creative solutions; promote personal development, self-reliance and effective communication; measure and develop the effectiveness of the individual within a team; implement and appraise planning and development schemes; develop production skills. At all levels you will be given the opportunity to develop: an awareness of your present level of key skill acquisition; an understanding of the importance of effective development planning within personal progression. All the above aims are based upon: your previous study and experience; the vocational needs and the requirements of the workplace. 12. Learning Outcomes, Teaching, Learning and Assessment Methods A. Knowledge and Understanding A.1 Demonstrate the use of critical and contextual language and evaluation in relation to music production, performance, cultural events and products. A.2 Discuss relevant historical and current examples which outline the origin, development and changing nature of structures within the performance and media industries A.3 Recognise the context for their compositional approach and production processes A.4 Understand the technical processes involved in the realisation of musical ideas A.5 Utilise skills and knowledge relating to audio and video work from a range of approaches B. Subject-specific skills B.1 Create audio visual installation environments with reference to theory and practice in this area B.2 Compose musical material using music technology software, hardware and the recording studio as creative tools B.3 Develop skills in pre and post production across a range of creative musical undertakings B.4 Appraise and utilise the technologies employed within various media workflows C. Thinking Skills C.1 Demonstrate an understanding of the links between theory and practice in a range of creative and cultural domains C.2 Initiate, conduct and disseminate research from a number of sources and through various methodologies. C.3 Evaluate and contextualise their creative output and working processes C.4 Administrate the processes within project development and its implementation, with specific references to a Personal Development Plan C.5 Produce written evaluative documents informed by relevant debates through independent study D. Other skills relevant to employability and personal development D.1 Identify and apply professional values to all aspects of production process, presentation and archive D.2 Evaluate the processes involved within collaborative and client focussed work D.3 Plan and organise a personal programme of study within non-negotiable deadlines with adherence to academic conventions 3

4 D.4 Apply the principles of effective teamwork within a disciplined and professional environment Teaching and Learning Methods Across all modules and at all levels teaching and learning are synthesised from a variety of learning activities and opportunities. Learning situations include: Lecture/demonstrations Case studies Seminars and discussion groups Practical tutor led workshops Technical guidance Group tutorials and verbal feedback One to one tutorials written and verbal feedback Analysis of contemporary and historical practice Software training Software skills development Performance/installation Self-reflection and peer group evaluation Rehearsal Thinking skills within this course are the intellectual qualities related to cognitive ability through the acquisition of critical and contextual knowledge. The application of these qualities occurs in all teaching and learning situations and throughout the teaching and learning is focussed upon the analysis of original work in a variety of contexts. It is expected that students should demonstrate a critical understanding of the content and ideas that exist within a wide range of works. The application of these qualities occurs in all teaching and learning situations and at this level six these are focussed upon the stating of ideas from one or more contexts using specialist vocabulary and critical language. This is a vocational course and outcomes are designed to enhance the transition from study to workplace. The ability to administrate, manage and direct becomes more important at level six where learning at this level should be negotiated, perhaps through learning contracts, with students becoming independent of tutors and sharing learning responsibilities with other group members. Outcomes at level six are designed to bring to maturity the transition from study to workplace. They relate to the ability to administrate, manage and lead a team and work should be determined by selfdevised goals and stimuli. Assessment methods Assessment occurs through the application of knowledge and theory within practical activities, assessment also occurs through written submissions and presentations and. presentation of hard copy of various media video screenings presentation to peer group viva voce marketing presentation 4

5 written assignments research presentation the pitch and treatment of an idea the use of subject specific terminologies Assessment occurs through the effectiveness of practical and performance work and is evaluated through reference to personal development plans, peer responses viva voce and tutor comments. 13.

6 RP1003(L4) Music in Context 15. Personal Development Planning Personal Development Planning (PDP) is a key aspect of all the performing arts courses at UCLan. PDP is integrated within all modules and across the totality of study. PDP, through the creation of a personal document referred to as a Progress File, helps you to define and focus your educational and professional aims and goals; it will assist you to consider how you can engage with the learning opportunities your course offers to achieve your personal career and professional objectives. This course consists of modules with fixed syllabi that together enable you and your colleagues to gain the knowledge and develop the skills essential if you are to be a successful practitioner. However the course is designed to allow you to choose or negotiate many aspects of your learning in ways which are appropriate to your abilities, learning preferences and vocational intentions. Thus is referred to as a student-centred learning approach. When coupled with the self-monitoring and evaluation of PDP, you find that study shifts from a tutor-led/teaching activity to a personally-defined learning experience. This is close to the way many professional artists operate and the terms reflective practitioners or thinking artist describe the kind of graduate we expect you to become. 16.
