Music and sound production make a vital contribution to not only media and communications, but culture as a whole. Sound moves people; it defines eras, shapes personalities, sells products and adds meaning to moving imagery on our screens.

This music and sound production degree in London, UK, is for aspiring media composers, sound designers and audio producers who wish to supercharge their skills and apply them in a wide range of roles in the creative industries.

You will develop specialisms which could include audio production in studio, live and location settings, sound design, songwriting, composition and soundtrack creation for film, television, games and immersive media (VR/AR).

The course is practically-focused, and you will get an understanding of audio, sound arts and music as distinct specialisms, as well as how they intersect with storytelling and the moving image. Ultimately, you will be encouraged to apply the technical and creative aspects of sound and music production in a project-based learning environment.
