Southwark College has introduced a new Music Technology course starting in February. This practical course is designed for adults looking to gain new skills and get hands-on with the latest software the industry has to offer.
The UK music industry contributes billions of pounds to the economy every year and the rise of music technology presents an exciting opportunity to develop new specialist skills. Whether you are looking to progress your career or considering a course for leisure, this programme can provide you with an understanding of music technology and how to create your own original music.
Taking place in Southwark College’s modern studios in the heart of SE1, students will learn how to use and get the most out of the Logic Pro X and Ableton Live platforms, providing the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of mixing, compose original music, edit audio, sample and program beats, sequence music and create new instrument libraries.
The College’s music technology suite has complete workstations which include Apple Macintosh computers, controller keyboards and several music software platforms.
The course runs for 10 weeks and costs £90, with sessions taking place on Wednesdays from 18:30 - 20:30. Students will benefit from a blend of one-to-one coaching and group learning delivered by industry-experienced tutors.
The College welcomes thousands of adult learners every year and has a proud history of delivering a range of music courses. Once you complete your course, you can progress on to a specialised course, other further education programmes or entry-level jobs in the music industry.
If you are over 18 years old, have an interest in music technology and want to develop and test your creativity, then this course is for you. To find out more and apply, visit southwark.ac.uk/music-technology.
