Academically, the school's focus is on Music Technology. We have one of the best-equipped and highest performing departments in the UK, with four purpose-built Pro Tools based digital recording studios, equipped to a professional level with industry standard sound-proofing, acoustically-treated walls, floating floors and magnetically-sealed doors.
There is also a dedicated MIDI/Audio editing suite with its own network running Pro Tools and Cubase software. Here students can develop their composing and arranging skills whilst learning to use industry standard software.
Students also have the opportunity to hone their skills as part of the professional sound crew for productions, which includes working on everything from Sound Design to operating the Front of House mixing desk.
