There’s more to being a music producer than people realise. This course is designed to expose you to all elements of the job – creating great music is only part of the story.

Our team of industry active tutors will work with you on the latest software in our studios, to build and manage large-scale projects; to enhance what you’re already doing in order to develop your experience in areas that will benefit you and your future career.

Think of it like this… Your first day on the course is your first day in the industry. The challenge to you is; Can you sustain it? Can you build on it to forge a rewarding career? In our experience, you can.

BA (Hons) Music Production is at the center of the Futureworks’ creative community, mirroring media industries around us. There are games design teams and animators who need sound; film students looking for original music, sound effects and dialogue – it’s a media production hub, bursting with potential, talent and creative opportunity.

To help you make the most of your experience at Futureworks, we have an outstanding team of tutors on hand to guide you through your studies. All our tutors are currently active in one form or another within the music industry. For example, our staff include the owner of a record label, a highly experienced and successful record producer and a commercial music composer. We think it is essential that your teaching team are part of the industry as it ensures that the knowledge that they pass on is relevant and current. It also means that they have excellent industry contacts that our students can tap into for real-world projects.
