Music Technology A Level

The Music Technology course has a distinctly different focus from the Music A level course. Topics covered include music recording and production techniques, sound and audio technology and how the development of technology changed with and influenced popular music. If you’re more Pharrell Williams than John Williams, this could be the course for you!

During the course, students learn to how produce their own recordings and compositions using advanced features of Logic Pro® in both the computer suite and the recording studio. Students will also build an understanding of the technical processes and principles that underpin effective use of music technology and learn about the development of popular music from the early 20th century through to the present day.
This course will be particularly well-suited to students who are already performing, writing or producing their own music.

Looking Further Ahead

Following the Music Technology course, you may wish to progress to a college course or degree in Music Technology or Sound Production. 

Careers within Music Technology include Record Producing, Sound Engineering and Composing for TV, film, computer games and teaching. 

Previous students have gone to Leeds College of Music to study Music Production.
