Music Technology

Music Technology A level is for those musicians interested in learning how music can be created using technology. Students learn how to use the recording studio to record, process and mix songs to a professional
standard.

In addition, students learn to how use samplers, synthesisers and other electronic instruments to create original music. In addition to these practical activities, students also learn the about the technical aspects of sound and music and how the equipment works and how it has developed over the last century.

The course combines practical work with the theoretical side of Music Technology.

There are two exams with higher weighting given to the second exam which contains practical tasks.

This is a challenging course which requires musical skills, critical listening and a willingness to engage in study of theoretical topics relating to recording and music production. Students should have some musical experience (ideally having studied GCSE Music, or an instrument to Grade 5 standard) and basic keyboard skills are an advantage for the composition component.

Beyond Bryanston

Music Technology A Level equips students with a broad range of skills, including project management, appraising and analysis, creativity and imagination. Students will be able to progress to undergraduate study in Music Technology, Sound Production, Sound Engineering and many other courses requiring a similar skill set.
