This module is a continuation of the level 4 module studio recording, so candidates wishing to take this as a stand alone module would need a reasonable level of experience. At level 5 this module really goes into the finite detail of instrumental placement within a mix, with the student at level 6 being offered a creative choice in terms of what to record.

Aims of the module

Level 5

This module aims to extend students’ skills and knowledge through application and begin to introduce students to the concept of the studio as a creative tool. Students will be required to develop personal initiative and a proactive approach to production in order to meet appropriate standards, commercial deadlines and professional demands.

Level 6

This module aims to prepare students for professional employment in a wide range of music production contexts.


Entry Requirements

Entry Requirements

Pre-requisites for taking the module

At level 5

  • To be able to understand the specific frequencies of certain instruments and how they affect the sound of the overall mix
  • To go beyond the basic features of the studio, so as to be able to use it as a creative rather than just a functional tool.

At level 6

  • To have the ability to do all of the above to a more advanced standard, with the emphasis being on developing what the students have learnt in Years 1 and 2
  • To have the ability to be employable in a range of situations, certainly be the end of the course.
  • To start developing their own sound, as students have much more freedom at level 6 in terms of the material they choose to produce.
  • To get more involved in the arranging and production
  • To understand the process of manipulating and using technologies to produce music with appropriate stylistic considerations
