Full Description:

With an emphasis on various forms of popular and contemporary music, the course will focus on the practical and the theoretical. Across the eight units you will begin to explore music theory, the workings of the music industry as a business and as a cultural force in modern society, and – of course- get a lot of opportunity to play. Expect to have your standard of musicianship raised considerably. Expect also to learn a lot about working with other people, particularly within a band context. Right from the start you will be treated like a young professional musician, with gigs at the likes of The Marquee, the Arts Centre, and rehearsals in PLUG recording studios – as well as in the College’s purpose built recording, rehearsal and technology studios.

There are a number of key visits during the year. These change each year, but for now the main thing to consider is that you will need to see a lot of live music.
