Course Content

On this course you will gain a thorough appreciation of the role of electronic music production in music-making today as it is used across the music and media industries.

Through your theory and practical studies, you will come to consider electronic music as not just a single genre but as a way of making music that can be applied to a multitude of styles.

You will learn to harness today’s hardware and software to sequence, sample, synthesise, compose, produce and remix sound, as well as to make music and experiment with sound design.

Led by experienced tutors who are actively practising in the music business, you will learn about new findings in music research and gain industry insights that could help you in your career. In addition, you will be able to work with our highly qualified and friendly audio technicians/demonstrators, who will help you master the technical challenges of electronic music production.

The University of West London offers an excellent range of technical facilities and studios. With seven professionally equipped studios, live rooms, numerous smaller studios and programming suites fully loaded with the latest industry software, you will be studying in one of the largest audio complexes in Europe.

Our location, close to the vibrant music scene in London, provides unique opportunities for placements, work experience and networking. We will also encourage you to collaborate with other musicians and artists at LCM so you will be able to apply your skills in a variety of live situations, working with performers in a range of genres, including classical, pop, jazz and contemporary.
