The BA (Hons) Music Production offers students holding a Level 3 vocational qualification the opportunity to obtain a full degree in a distinctive and inclusive learning community that has provided adult education in the arts for over 125 years. Walking in the footsteps of experimental musical pioneers such as Tippett, Cardew & Oram, students will benefit from a vibrant music culture integrated with industry-standard studios and technical resources. With events to engage with they will be part of a large and well-regarded music department situated right in the heart of London with direct access to the capital’s world-leading music industry. Students will be coming to the course with a range of musical skills and interests, so the aim of the BA (Hons) Music Production is to expand their technical, theoretical and creative horizons whilst encouraging increasing specialisation in their chosen field, to build a credible career path following graduation. The content reflects these aims, taking in project work, research and critical skills, collaborative work and skills acquisition, whilst developing higher levels of student autonomy, which will facilitate their own self-determined path. Students will gain experience of live briefs and SME operations and have access to existing projects such as The Engine Room sonic arts exhibition and international competition, TERM Records (Morley College’s new record label) and Morley Radio. They will benefit from additional experiences by joining in with our wide range of existing ensembles, supporting performances in London venues or recording concerts as assistants to the work of Morley College Studios. They will be able to work with our resident artist in workshops and to attend symposiums put on by Morley to gain insight from industry professionals.
