Music (Level 6)

North East Scotland College


Aberdeen City Campus


This course is designed for musicians who wish to develop their career in the music industry, and will give you the chance to work on a range of projects and performances alongside like-minded musicians. It is primarily aimed at those who wish to develop their skills and prepare for a career in music, and is therefore suitable for potential composers, songwriters, performers or behind-the-scenes technicians/producers.

On this course you will learn to produce your own music in our custom-built studios, using the latest industry-standard equipment. You will focus on live performance, music technology and engineering/production whilst studying UK trends, and learning to appreciate the diversity and opportunities that lie within the music industry as a whole. You will also complete a creative project and learn how to organise a community-based musical event.

Entry Requirements
