ABOUT THE COURSE
Do you want to develop your performance skills and pursue a career within the music industry?
Studying CTEC Music will help you to develop skills on an instrument of your choice (or vocals), learn performance techniques in various musical styles, compose music and learn how to use industry standard software for recording and producing music. You will also learn how to set-up and use our state-of-the-art recording studio.
In the second year, you will rehearse and perform a set as part of a group for the student gig night and study the workings of the music industry. You will also plan, create and deliver a professional music product of your choice, working to deadlines as part of a production team. This may well be a self-produced album of original songs, a musical theatre piece, a music festival, or even a music book – the choice will be yours to pursue whatever interests you musically.
You will be able to showcase your talent at our regular student gig nights, become part of the event management team, record your own music to professional standard and take part in various music-based trips.
WHAT WE ADD
You will be taught by tutors with industry experience and within specially-built facilities, with the latest studio recording equipment. There are a wide-range of opportunities within the music department – from regular student gig nights throughout the year, to recording opportunities, either as a producer or performer. You may also have the opportunity to showcase your work by contributing to the Broads Authority’s annual Broads Album.
HOW CAN I STANDOUT WITH MUSIC?
Our students have gone on to study a range of music-based degrees, including music technology, music business and musical theatre. Career prospects include live session musician, live sound engineer, event manager and more.
