Our courses suit a range of ability levels – from the hobbyist, to those wanting to fully pursue career in the music industry. So, what are you waiting for?
We’re different from other schools in our attitude to teaching. We think topics are best learnt not from writing lots of essays; we go for the hands-on rather than eyes-down approach. Expect to roll up your sleeves up and get stuck into creative tasks – remixing, track deconstructions, collaborative projects, recording bands, and working towards creating professional music in the style that you want to.
We run a foundation entry year at SEM. Students who love music but may not have achieved the right grades at GCSE or A-level to study at degree level, can join us for this entry year.
This year then allows students to get back onto an academic pathway leading to a full degree. Check out our BA (Hons) Music Production and Performance for more information.
Our longer music production courses are made up from combinations of 6 modules. Tailor-make your course by choosing any of these 6. If there’s a course combination not shown, contact the school and we can arrange this for you.
