Over the course of one year, we’ll guide you through a fun and exciting personalised journey where you’ll explore the world of music production across live, studio and digital music making settings.
Classes take place in ICMP’s high-tech Mac Labs, 24-track recording studio and dedicated teaching spaces, using industry-standard hardware and software. Your highly esteemed music production tutors will train you in the use of Pro Tools, Logic Pro, Ableton Live, so on completion of the course you’ll have a proficient working knowledge of these music production tools and will be able to operate them effectively in a professional setting.
Alongside developing your musical creativity and technical know-how, the CertHE Creative Music Production will give you the interpersonal, business and entrepreneurial skills needed to broaden your musical horizons and progress your career as a music producer. You’ll have regular opportunities to collaborate with both fellow music production students and vocalists, guitarists, bassists, drummers and songwriters also studying at ICMP. You’ll instantly be a part of ICMP’s dynamic learning community, where you can build your personal and professional network, working in real-world settings and linking with the music industry.
ICMP’s incredible facilities can be booked outside of class hours for personal use, free of charge, seven days a week, meaning you’ll have instant access to the very best kit to progress your creativity and talent as a music producer, including writing rooms and studios, instruments, synths, drum machines, controllers, loop stations, vocal processors and effects pedals, microphones and more.
At the end of your time with us, you’ll have gained a solid understanding of the practical elements of music production and recording, as well as a firm idea of the way the music industry operates, and a sense of music’s place throughout history and in the wider world. You’ll also possess good networking skills, a great list of contacts and the necessary drive to get started in the music industry.
