A broad range of courses offer opportunities to engage with music technologies, notated composition, songwriting, recording techniques, computer music, and collaborative projects.
Composition studies will give you significant hands-on experience writing music for instruments, voice, creating music with computers, and working with performers and improvisers. Careers could include sound design, film composition, songwriting, and recording.
You will also be well placed to move into training as a school music teacher or other educator, working with younger musicians who are developing their own music.
