Gain an HND in Music Technology / Sound Engineering in a REAL Music Industry Organisation, not a college!
BTEC HND IN MUSIC TECHNOLOGY / SOUND ENGINEERING 603/2275/5
Ever been told “There’s no money to made working in the music industry“?
According to latest DCMS data, the music industry contributes £4.4 billion to the UK economy, employing 142,208 professionals, and studio engineers were paid a combined £121 million. These figures grow year on year…
A successful career in the music industry relies on the networks you build; it’s a simple equation, the wider the network, the more opportunities for work you have. This explains why of the thousands of people who study music industry subjects in a college or university every year, only a small percentage of these actually end up working in the music industry.
Wouldn’t it be great if instead of getting saddled with 3 years of course-fee debt then having to spend another few years building the vital real experience you need to get the paying work, you could pass your qual and get the professional experience at the same time in just 2 years? After all, the piece of paper may prove you’ve done the work to pass a course, but being industry ready is a different thing entirely and without the real industry experience, you are of much lower value to a potential employer than someone who can just roll up and do the job properly, unassisted, on day 1.
We do things differently…
It’s pretty obvious that the only people you can really listen to about how the the music industry works in the real world are the professionals working in it every day, and so it makes sense that the best way to develop the skills needed to succeed in this industry, is to work alongside these professionals in real industry settings.
Instead of studying your qualification in a college, being taught by tutors with no serious industry credibility, and then waiting until you pass your qual to start building your network, you could study with a high profile music industry organisation with mountains of experience in training real pros, and who are also leaders in music industry development across an entire region (that’s us by the way…)
With us, you will study in real recording studios filled with high-end equipment, with an in-house record label, and radio station, and with course tutors who have worked with some of the biggest names in the music industry, linking you with real industry opportunities as part of your course.
What’s better is that not only are our class sizes small (max of 10) to give you more of our attention, but because we are a relatively smaller, professional music industry organisation, we have a much stronger focus on quality than a college, and can even afford to provide our courses for less than a college can.
We’ve spent 18 years delivering courses and turning out highly skilled people who can run rings around 99% of college graduates in similar subjects and felt the time was right to disrupt the college model completely and provide a world class HND course where all graduates have the well rounded skills and experience on finishing to be at the front of the queue when it comes to jobs and to get the kind of work they really want. Kind of makes sense when you come to think about it doesn’t it?
Our new HND in music technology and sound engineering starts in September 2019 and with only 10 places up for grabs, you need to get in touch as soon as possible to reserve your place.
Course fees £5975 per year (2 year course)
