In this Music Performance and Production (Hons) course from Leeds Beckett University you’ll have the option to gain invaluable work experience through a placement year in industry and the opportunity to work with external clients in your final year.
Throughout your course you’ll be encouraged to perform externally in the many venues that Leeds has to offer. Previous students have performed at events including the Live at Leeds festival, which attracts thousands of visitors to venues across the city every year.
As part of your course you’ll:
- Concentrate on four themes: performance (group and individual), composition and arrangement, technology and production, and contextual studies
- Work alongside students and staff both in the studio and at live music venues, building a portfolio that will help you achieve your professional ambitions as a musician
- Work in conjunction with students from music production in the studios as well as working in live venues
- Have access to workshops and industry professionals through our links with JAMES (Joint Audio Media Education Support) and the Music Producers Guild
With its strong vocational element, your course will help you nurture your industry contacts and kick-start your career in music. Both in the studio and on stage, you will gain plenty of practical experience to hone your production and performance skills. You could progress on to a postgraduate course in music production at the University, or you might decide to train to be a teacher.
