Program Overview

Develop and refine your creative process using inspiration from past and present composers. Express and apply this in different areas using a broad range of techniques and technologies. Recognised as the 'most musical city' in the UK (per capita) it is a fantastic place to study all genres of music

Why study creative music technology?

  • Music as an art form evolves constantly, with practitioners taking inspiration from composers and artists past and present and developing future sounds.
  • New technologies and techniques allow us to express our creativity in more ways than ever. These ideas can be applied to live performances, to music for film or computer games.
  • Musicians who understand the creative process and how to work within technical boundaries are well-equipped to build careers in this exciting industry.
  • If you're a performing musician, or a composer/producer, or both, with a basic understanding of technologies involved in the creative arts and a desire to develop your craft and expand your knowledge and practice into different areas of the audio sector, you'll find this course rewarding
