2 BA (Hons) Music Production DUCATIONA AIMS OF TH COURS The music industry has changed and evolved since the development of computer based recording systems and digital distribution. Music Production has become a challenging and competitive environment which presents creative and technological challenges. Our Music Production course is designed to develop skills and experience in audio production and recording. Using our state of the art facilities, you will examine the creative practices used within the Music Industry and through research, practical experimentation and development of critical skills, you will acquire knowledge in recording, mixing and mastering techniques, critical and creative listening, sequencing and audio editing and processing and develop practical and creative skills required to succeed in the Music Industry. The course also offers options to develop skills such as business awareness, electronics and programming skills to create your own hardware/software, music and artist promotion composition, audio for moving images such as film or computer games audio etc. During your first year (level 4) you will learn the basics of audio creation and production, audio recording and editing and audio fundamentals to provide you with key skills required for working within studio and production environments. You will also be introduced to music creative processes and practices, song writing and lyric writing and develop musicianship skills either individually or as part of a group. In your second year (level 5) you will learn specialist production and studio skills and apply this knowledge to produce audio productions and mixes of artists and bands using a range of equipment and software within a commercial recording setting. You will also gain in-depth knowledge of industry standard recording software packages to extend your knowledge of DAW environments. You will also develop skills in popular and experimental composition techniques and music theory. In your final year (level 6) you will focus on your project dissertation and portfolio. This is the pinnacle of your studies and will be the study of a specialist subject of your choice. Supported and guided by an academic member of staff, you will produce a written dissertation and physical piece of work (an audio production, a composition, etc.) to demonstrate all of the skills and knowledge you have gained during your studies. You will also develop advanced skills in mixing and mastering processes. The aims of the course are: To develop production, practical and theoretical skills in all areas of music and audio creation as well as creative song writing, music theory and performance skills To develop critical listening skills and develop imaginative concepts and ideas to create commercial music productions To prepare students for a range of careers in the music industry in terms of creative, technical and business skills To develop academic, creative and communication skills and develop a portfolio of work to demonstrate these skills To prepare students for the changing world of the creative industries and develop skills in order to create innovative ways of working to remain world leaders in their field 2

Practical Resources The Music departments have a large range of industry standard equipment and facilities which are used during teaching and assessment sessions. The laboratories, studios and lecture spaces are used for classes, laboratories, independent study, portfolio development, rehearsal and performances. Student also have access to film and camera equipment to develop media based show reel content to help self promotion and employment opportunities. The University s music resources can be used independently by students for work on individual and group projects. Independent learning is a key element to all University courses and to assist you there is a range of technical instruction (TI) sessions run by our teaching support staff to supplement the learning process. mployability mployability is at the core of the design of these courses and the learning strategy reflects that. mployability is determined by three main areas: Acquisition of Technical Skills earning about the Business nvironment Personal Development Planning (PDP) Your ecturers Your lecturers have a wide range of industrial and academic experience. Many have worked in the industry for many years and also have studied or are studying towards PhD level. This knowledge, experience and research is used to form the basis of your lectures and tutorials to ensure you have up-to-date skills and benefit from the best research currently available. All of the academic team are also members of the Higher 8

9 ducation Academy, a national body which recognises teaching quality. As described earlier in this document, we also invite visiting lecturers to give talks giving a unique insight into the music industry by world renowned producers, songwriters and musicians. Assessment A range of assessment techniques are used, including presentations, written reports, practical work, oral tests, online tests, exams, class tests and group work. The method of assessment has been carefully considered for each learning outcome of each module and the most appropriate method to assess that outcome has been used. Throughout this course the majority of assessments are course work based. There are no exams in evel 4 but a number of on-line multiple choice tests have been introduced via Blackboard. The module assessments are designed not only to assess your progress but also to help you develop a portfolio of work to use as a 'showreel' to prospective employers. As the creative industries are largely interested in the quality of the creative output of its employees as well as their academic skills and their ability to learn, it is vital that assessments of your modules reflect the nature of industry requirements An example of assessment is the level 5 module 'Practical Studio Techniques' During semester 1 you will be given lectures and demonstrations on technical and theoretical processes such as equalisation, compression, audio routing and processing and equipment design. very two weeks you will be asked a series of questions as a formative assessment on knowledge gained during the course of the module. This allows the academic members of staff to give you instant feedback regarding your knowledge and performance and give advice on areas they feel require further research and practical development and practice. This, therefore, will enable you to reflect on the quality and pace of your own learning. During semester 2 you will use these skills to record an artist/band and produce various mixes. You will be observed and given feedback during the recording process and will then present your mixes and a reflective account of the whole production process in the form of a group presentation. You will be encouraged to keep a copy of your work to add to a portfolio of work to demonstrate to prospective employers your practical and academic skills. The vast majority of written assessment will be handed in electronically through our online virtual learning environment and the deadline for these assessments is usually 12:00 midnight on the hand in date. However, if you are required to hand in a printed copy this would be in the Faculty Office. Instructions for the submission of practical assignments will be included in the relevant module handbooks. 9
